The Green Belt Germany is a nature conservation project by several federal states.
The almost 1,400 km long strip of land along the former inner-German border is to remain a green belt or to become one again.
The 50–200 m wide strip of land extends from Travemünde to the border triangle at Hof.
The Green Belt Germany is part of the Central European section of the Green Belt Europe.
The Green Belt is the largest biotope network in Germany.
There are 600 threatened species in Germany in the associated 150 nature reserves.
The German Green Belt runs almost entirely on the east side of the former inner-German border.
Insofar as border corrections have been made since 1990, it can, however, also pass through a West German state.
This applies, for example, to the northeast bank of the Elbe in what is now Lower Saxony's Neuhaus district.(Source: Wikipedia)
