The little country Bellin (or just Bellin ) is a small plateau northwest of Berlin , between Nauen and Neuruppin . It can be seen as the western continuation of the Gliens . For the most part, it consists of ground moraines that formed about 20,000 years ago in the most recent, the Vistula Ice Age. The little country stretches for almost 15 km in an east-west direction and thus separates the Eberswalder Urstromtal in the north with the Rhinluch from the Berlin Urstromtal with the Havelländischer Luch in the south. The most important places are Fehrbellin ("Bellin'sche Fähre"), Hakenberg and Linum . The plateau is mainly used for agriculture; Small forest areas are interspersed. The eastern part of the little country Bellin is cut through by the A24 (Berlin-Hamburg).
