✦ The 16 federal states of Germany are:
An inventive spirit and vigour, hard work and thrift – that’s the Baden-Württembergers’ recipe for success.
The Bavarians’ pronounced sense of belonging to their state is rooted in their history, which goes back more than a thousand years.
Berlin – the divided city. That was the status quo after the 1948 blockade and the construction of the Wall in 1961.
In days gone by Brandenburg was the heart of Prussia; now it is a region fit for the future in a united Europe, with Berlin at its centre.
The "Free Hanseatic City of Bremen", encompassing Bremen and Bremerhaven, has been shaped by seafaring, trade and port activities.
Hamburg is Germany’s gateway to the world, the country’s largest maritime port and most important focal point for foreign trade.
Located right in the heart of the country, Hesse has one of the healthiest economies of all the German federal states.
In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, once known as the "state of castles and cottages", the landscape has a clear influence on the local people.
When West and East Germany were still divided, Lower Saxony was the federal state with the longest stretch (550 km) of the border separating the two states.
North Rhine-Westphalia is far and away the most populous federal state.
Rhineland Palatinate lies at the centre of Europe, right at the heart of that continent striving for ever-closer integration.
Saarland is a pioneer among the German federal states when it comes to progress towards a united Europe.
The Free State of Saxony
Saxony’s international historical reputation never stemmed primarily from military might, but was rooted instead in the peaceful development of trade, the economy, intellectual prowess and splendour.
The Free State of Saxony-Anhalt
Saxony-Anhalt, the federal state on the banks of the Elbe and Saale rivers, lies at the very heart of German history.
Schleswig-Holstein, lying between the North Sea and the Baltic, constitutes a link between the European Union, Scandinavia and the other states surrounding the Baltic Sea.
The Free State of Thuringia
Thuringia is often described as the "green heart of Germany".
Germany is a federal republic consisting of sixteen federal states (German: Bundesland, or Land).[a] Since Germany has a federal constitution, the constituent states retain a measure of sovereignty. With an emphasis on geographical conditions, Berlin and Hamburg are frequently called Stadtstaaten (city-states), as is the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, which in fact includes the cities of Bremen and Bremerhaven. The remaining 13 states are called Flächenländer (literally: area states).
The creation of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1949 was through the unification of the western states (which were previously under American, British, and French administration) created in the aftermath of World War II. Initially, in 1949, the states of the Federal Republic were Baden, Bavaria, Bremen, Hamburg, Hesse, Lower Saxony, North Rhine Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Schleswig-Holstein, Württemberg-Baden, and Württemberg-Hohenzollern. West Berlin, while officially not part of the Federal Republic, was largely integrated and considered as a de facto state.
