Lower Saxony between the Wadden Sea and the Harz Mountains

From the sandy beaches of the seven North Sea islands to the dykes of East Frisia and from the picturesque Lusatian Heath to the Wurmberg mountain in the Harz mountains at an altitude of almost 1,000 metres, Lower Saxony offers scenic contrasts in a class of their own.

The most important centres of Germany's second-largest state by area are the state capital Hanover, large cities such as Braunschweig, Göttingen, Wolfsburg and Hildesheim and the outskirts of the conurbations south of Hamburg and around the enclave of Bremen.
