"Nelles Verlag" is a German publisher of maps and guidebooks.
The "Nelles" maps are well known and appreciated for their reference precision and quality. The maps present road and rail networks on a base with topography indicated by relief shading with names of mountain ranges and peaks plus additional spot heights. Local airports are marked and the maps also show internal administrative boundaries with names of the provinces.
Places of interest, including historical sites, beaches, national parks or protected area, etc. are highlighted both on the main map and on the accompanying street plans or enlargements. The maps are not indexed. Map legend includes English. The extensive range consists of a large number of destinations for which it is difficult to find other good maps. Asian destinations in particular are very well represented, and in recent years, more coverage has been given to both South America and Africa.
