Our editable vector map base of Germany is suitable for all royalty free commercial uses. The boundaries of Germany’s 16 federal states / Bundesländer are included in interlocking layers on the editable Illustrator and SVG files, which means you can colour each state differently if wanted, and hide or show the regions as needed.

The four styling examples shown here are included as ready to use PDFs and JPEGs in the download alongside the editable Illustrator and SVG files. Click on the map to the right to pan and zoom through the different examples.

The 16 federal states / Bundesländer plotted on the Germany map are Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Mecklenburg-West Pomerania), Bremen, Brandenburg, Berlin, Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), Sachsen-Anhalt (Saxony-Anhalt), Sachsen (Saxony), Thüringen (Thuringia), Hessen (Hesse), Nordrhein-Westfalen (North Rhine-Westphalia), Rheinland-Pfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate), Saarland, Baden-Württemberg and Bayern (Bavaria).

There are separate label layers on the Illustrator file that let you quickly switch between the German and Anglicised sate and country names.
