The northwestern portion of Lower Saxony is a part of Frisia it is called Ostfriesland and lies on the coast of the North Sea. It includes seven islands, known as the East Frisian Islands.

The northern half of Lower Saxony is absolutely flat, but there are two mountain chains in the south the Weserbergland and the Harz.
