GERMANY IS BORDERED IN THE NORTHWEST BY THE NORTH SEA
AND TO THE NORTHEAST BY THE BALTIC SEA AND DENMARK. POLAND AND
CZECHOSLOVAKIA SURROUND THE EASTERN BORDER, WITH AUSTRIA
AND SWITZERLAND TO THE SOUTH AND FRANCE, BELGIUM AND THE
NETHERLANDS AND LUXEMBURG TO THE WEST. GERMANY MAY BE DIVIDED
INTO THREE GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS.

THE NORTHERN LOWLANDS, BEING A CONTINUATION OF THE NORTH
EUROPEAN PLAIN STRETCHING ACROSS THE COUNTRY FROM THE
URALS IN RUSSIA, THROUGH POLAND AND ON TO THE
NETHERLANDS. THIS PLAIN IS MOSTLY SITUATED IN THE LOWER
SAXONY AND NORTHERN RHINE REGION TO THE EASTERN PART OF
GERMANY. THE LAND IN THIS AREA IS MAINLY ARABLE AND
AGRICULTURE IS COMMON.

THE CENTRAL PLATEAU STRETCHES FROM THE ERZGEBIRGE RANGE
ON THE BORDER OF CZECHOSLOVAKIA WESTWARDS TO THE RUHR
MOUNTING TOWARDS THE SWISS ALPS AND THE BAVARIAN ALPS TO
THE EAST. THE ZUGSPITZE IS THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN TO THE
EAST AND REACHES 2,963M.

THE COUNTRIES TO THE WEST AND EAST OF GERMANY ARE LINKED
TOGETHER BY THE GREAT RIVERS: THE RHINE TO FRANCE, THE
ELBE TO CZECHOSLOVAKIA, THE ODER AND NEISSE TO POLAND
AND THE DANUBE TO HUNGARY AND AUSTRIA.
