this page you will find a map of Germany
and some information about the country. The map is a detail of a Map
of the World published by Planet
Poster Editons in Germany.
Map of the World costs 11.50 Euros, it is described in detail at www.planetposter.de
(only in German) and can be ordered at www.wissenladen.de.

Germany's capital is Berlin, which is also the biggest city of the country. Flights to Germany usually go to Frankfurt airport. Other cities indicated in our map are Hamburg, Bremen, Hannover (Hanover), Köln (Cologne), Essen, Dortmund, Leipzig, Stuttgart and München (Munich).
The single official language of Germany is German. Next to German some languages of minorities have more or less half official status: Danisch (in Schleswig-Holstein), Frisian (Schleswig-Holstein und Niedersachen/Lower Saxony), Lower German (or Low German, in northern Germany), Sorbian (in Sachsen/Saxony) und Romani (all over Germany). These are languages of minorities living for many centuries in Germany. Significantly more people in present-day Germany speak completely different languages, for example Turkish (2-3 millions, since the 1970s), Russian (since the 1990s) or Kurdish (since the 1970s). These languages have no official status of any kind. In the constrast, the children living in these communities have many problems in getting along in Germany.
Tourism is of locally high importance in Germany. There are beach holiday facilities in the north at the coasts of North Sea and Baltic Sea, and alpine tourism in the Bavarian Alps in the south. Nearly all cities are connected by a fairly good railway network. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to Benin.

city inhabitants and vegetational zones were researched by hand for every country,
by using the sources listed below. This procedure prevented the map from containing
