German Central Mountains

The German low mountain ranges are perhaps the most typical landscape of the country. With altitudes from 300 m to 1,500 m, they are mainly characterized by forests, valleys and rivers. The important tourist regions are not only natural but also cultural landscapes as well as leisure and recreation areas. The German low mountain ranges include all mountains of the country except the Alps and the Alpine foothills, including, for example, the Black Forest and Bavarian Forest, the Harz and Eifel, the Thuringian Forest and the Fichtelgebirge.
