The English word Germany derives from the Latin Germania, which came into use after Julius Caesar adopted it for the peoples east of the Rhine (see Germany map). The German term Deutschland (originally diutisciu land, "the German lands") is derived from deutsch, descended from Old High German diutisc "popular" (i. e., belonging to the diot or diota "people"; originally used to distinguish the language of the common people from Latin and its Romance descendants).

States in the map of Northern Germany: Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), Schleswig Holstein, Hamburg, Bremen. Mostly flat or gently undulating, most of the scenery of northern Germany is a continuation of the Netherlands, in a landscape of rich farmland carved up by canals and rivers, with big skies and big cattle and handsome brick-built farmhouses. Expanses of waterlogged moorland (around Worpswede) and heathery heath (Luneberg) are common, but this is primarily very productive agricultural land, and fruit trees prosper in Alte Land, close to Hamburg, the largest orchard area in Europe.
Northern Germany boasts an array of lesser-known destinations like the port city of Lübeck, the bustling city of Hamburg and the Gothic city of Stralsund as its mentioned in the map of Northern Germany. Enjoy your time in Deutschland by exploring these fantastic and unforgettable destinations in Northern Germany, Rostock boasts several fun attractions like historic buildings, a zoo and one of the prettiest beaches in Germany. Heligoland, this island off the German coast is located in the North Sea, and it is known for its absence of car traffic.
The northern third of the country lies in the North European Plain, with flat terrain crossed by northward-flowing watercourses (Elbe, Ems, Weser, Oder). Wetlands and marshy conditions are found close to the Dutch border and along the Frisian coast as its shown in the map of Northern Germany. Sandy Mecklenburg in the northeast has many glacier-formed lakes dating to the last glacial period.
Map of Southern Germany shows the South part of the country Germany. Southern Germany map will allow you to easily explore areas of the South of Germany in Europe. The map of Southern Germany is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.
Modern southern Germany includes the states of Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, and the southern part of the state of Hessen as you can see in the map of Southern Germany. In the south it is bounded by the Alps, Lake Constance, and the east-west section of the upper Rhine River that extends to Basel. In the east it is bounded by the Fichtelgebirge, the Bavarian Forest, and the forest of the Upper Palatinate. The northern margin is formed by the low mountain ranges of the Taunus, the Vogelsberg, the Rhön, and the Franconian Forest. The upper Rhine Plain east of the Vosges Mountains marks the border to the west.
Southern Germany is a fascinating mishmash of merry folk festivals, fairy-tale towns untouched by time, stunning futuristic cities, quintessential German medieval towns, glitzy ski resorts, a string of castles, and endless history and culture as its shown in the map of Southern Germany. It is surrounded by the majestic Bavarian Alps and dotted with crystal-clear alpine lakes, making it one of the most stunning regions in the country. Though the entire region is worth exploring.
Southern Germany landforms are defined by various linear hill and mountain ranges like the two adjacent ranges of the Swabian and Franconian Alb (reaching approximately from the source of the Danube in the southwest of Baden-Württemberg, south of Stuttgart, across Swabia into Central Franconia and to the valley of the river Main) and the Bavarian Forest along the border between Bavaria and the Czech Republic. The Alps on the southern border are the highest mountains, but relatively little Alpine terrain lies within Germany (in southeastern Swabia and Upper Bavaria as you can see in the map of Southern Germany) compared to Switzerland and Austria. The Black Forest, on the southwestern border with France, separates the Rhine from the headwaters of the Danube on its eastern slopes.
