Elbe–Weser triangle

Summary
The region between the Elbe and Weser rivers (the triangle of Bremen, Hamburg, and Cuxhaven) forms the Elbe–Weser triangle (Elbe-Weser-Dreieck; Northern Low Saxon: Elv-Werser-Dreeeck), also rendered Elbe-Weser Triangle, in northern Germany. It is also colloquially referred to as the Nasses Dreieck or "wet triangle". The Elbe–Weser triangle is a geographical region and, historically and politically, corresponds roughly to the former territory of Bremen-Verden and formed the major part of the former Stade Region. Today the Elbe–Weser triangle belongs to Lower Saxony outside the borders of the Hanseatic cities. The Stade Regional Association (Landschaftsverband Stade) operates within the Elbe–Weser triangle as a regional cultural organisation. Political divisions State of Lower Saxony
