WHAT DOES WESTFALEN MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Westfalen

Westphalia

Westphalia or Westfalia is a region in Germany, centred on the cities of Arnsberg, Bielefeld, Osnabrück, Dortmund, Minden, and Münster. Westphalia is roughly the region in between the rivers Rhine and Weser, located both north and south of the Ruhr River. No exact definition of borders can be given, because the name "Westphalia" was applied to several different entities in history. For this reason specifications of area and population differ greatly. They range between 16,000 and 22,000 km2 in land area, and between 4.3 million and 8 million inhabitants. There is, however, a general consensus that Münster Bielefeld and Dortmund are part of Westphalia. In principle the term "Westphalia" contrasts with the much less used term "Eastphalia", which covers roughly the area of modern Saxony-Anhalt towards the historic region of Brunswick or Braunschweig. A linguistic definition of Westphalia includes the former Prussian Province of Westphalia, Lippe, the region around Osnabrück and the greater area of the Emsland. Present-day common use, however, often restricts the notion to the present part of North Rhine-Westphalia.
