Czechoslovakia in the south, West Germany in the south and west, the
Baltic Sea to the north, and
Poland in the east.
Much of the territory of the former East Germany lay on the
North German Plain and was largely flat and agricultural apart from low morainic hills left by the ice age. However in the south the land rose to the
Ore Mountains and
Elbe Sandstone Mountains that formed the border with its Communist neighbour, Czechoslovakia.
