The area of Northern Germany without geographical or political boundaries.

Northern Germany is the geographic area in the north of Germany. The native German concept of northern Germany is called Norddeutschland.



The key terrain features of North Germany are the marshes along the coastline of the North Sea and Baltic Sea, and the geest and heaths inland. Also prominent are the low hills of the Baltic Uplands, the ground moraines, end moraines, sandur, glacial valleys, bogs, and Luch.
