From north to south Germany is divided into five regions with different topographical features: the North German Plain, the Central Upland Range, the terrace panorama of the southwest, the Alpine foothills in the south and the Bavarian Alps.
Germany is situated in the moderately cool west wind zone between the Atlantic Ocean and the continental climate in the East.
Until Germany was reunited in 1990, the Federal Republic consisted of eleven states which had been created in the former Western occupation zones and had adopted democratic constitutions between 1946 and 1957.
