Facts about Germany

Posted on: May 21, 2008

The territory of the former East Germany (divided into five new Länder in 1990) accounts for almost one-third of united Germany’s territory and one-fifth of its population. After a close vote, in 1993 the Bundestag, the lower house of Germany’s parliament, voted to transfer the capital from Bonn in the west to Berlin, a city-state in the east surrounded by the Land of Brandenburg.

Topography: With its irregular, elongated shape, Germany provides an excellent example of a recurring sequence of landforms found the world over. A plain dotted with lakes, moors, marshes, and heaths retreats from the sea and reaches inland, where it becomes a landscape of hills crisscrossed by streams, rivers, and valleys. These hills lead upward, gradually forming high plateaus and woodlands and eventually climaxing in spectacular mountain ranges.

As of the mid-1990s, about 37 percent of the country’s area was arable; 17 percent consisted of meadows and pastures; 30 percent was forests and woodlands; and 16 percent was devoted to other uses. Geographers often divide Germany into four distinct topographic regions: the North German Lowland; the Central German Uplands; Southern Germany; and the Alpine Foreland and the Alps.

Climate: Cool, continental climate with abundant rainfall and long overcast season. Lower temperatures with considerable snowfall in east and south. Prone to rapid weather variations from merging of Gulf Stream and extreme northeastern climate conditions. More about climate in Germany…

Administrative Division: 16 states (Länder): Baden-Wuerttemberg, Bayern, Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Hessen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Saarland, Sachsen, Sachsen-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein, Thueringen.

اهلا وسهلا بحضوركم

Ambil yang baik dan tinggalkan yang buruk. Kebenaran datangnya dari Alloh SWT, kesalahan datangnya dari kelemahan diri saya pribadi. Jika ingin copy-paste silakan. Mohon masukan dan tegur sapa serta do'akan semoga tetap istiqomah di jalanNYA. Amien

Terima kasih atas kunjungan Anda

Allah exists without a place!

Sahabat Ali Ibn Abi Thalib berkata : "Sebagian golongan dari umat Islam ini ketika kiamat telah dekat akan kembali menjadi orang-orang kafir." Seseorang bertanya kepadanya : "Wahai Amirul Mukminin apakah sebab kekufuran mereka? Adakah karena membuat ajaran baru atau karena pengingkaran?” Sahabat Ali Ibn Abi Thalib menjawab : "Mereka menjadi kafir karena pengingkaran. Mereka mengingkari Pencipta mereka (Allah SWT) dan mensifati-Nya dengan sifat-sifat benda dan anggota-anggota badan." (Imam Ibn Al-Mu'allim Al-Qurasyi (w. 725 H) dalam Kitab Najm Al-Muhtadi Wa Rajm Al-Mu'tadi)
