Ländchen (Havelland)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ländchen and Luche des Havellands ; Elevation layers only for open terrain; Hills and slabs labeled red-brown, lowlands green

Ländchen called several glacial Liche high areas in Havel country , extending to more than 70 meters above the flat Urstromtalungen of Havelländisches lynx and Rhinluch rise. The differences are exacerbated by the different land use. Extensive meadows in the lowlands contrast with fields and forests on the hills. Geologically, it is largely closed ground moraine formations from the Saale Ice Age and the last Ice Age , which are partially overlaid by flat-wave terminal moraine formations.

Location and parts of the landscape

The Havelland border in the north of the Rhin and on the other three sides of the eponymous river . Within this border are:

There are also small and tiny islands that only support a village (e.g. Liepe ) or individual houses. The Nauener plate does not count because of their size to the countryside, and that includes their part landscapes. The land of Schollene is geologically closely connected. Due to its location across the river, it no longer belongs geographically to the Havelland, but administratively to the Havelland district .
