An outline map of Germany is a very simple blank map that only shows the outer boundaries of the country.

Tasks like labeling or coloring as well as drawing various geographical features or symbols into the map are useful options for this.

You could also organize the learning activities in a step-by-step process. Start with states and state borders, continue with state capitals and finish with rivers or mountain ranges.
