Get Inspired by a Printed World Map

Sunday, April 1, 2018

Do you want to travel the world – the whole world – and don’t know where to start? Here’s the place for inspiration – Weltkarten.de, for all those who seriously want to travel more. 

It’s an online shop for world maps. Oh, wait! It isn’t just another place to get those pocket maps. Weltkarten.de sends you large maps designed on various themes, and on the material you choose.

So, get a beautiful world map from Weltkarten.de that suits your taste, and start planning your next voyage. Let’s walk you through the inspiration options they have.

Educate yourself with a world map

World map can educate you a lot about the world.

There are detailed world maps of large size available for you to order. You can get a political map with countries and their borders or buy the one with terrains across the globe, to decorate your wall.

You get educational world maps with animals found in various parts of the world or the global flora. The availability of designs seems endless (although it’s not). There are maps made with strategically placed butterflies, they have one with splashes of color and also a world map designed with alphabets. 

There are so many designs that you may want them all.

For the traveler in you, get your world map coffee mug or buy a backpack with the map printed all over. You, then, literally have the world on your back. 

Get a themed notebook or a themed folder to store your moments. Then there are wallets, thermos, and even themed power-banks. There is more.

Put the whole world on your walls

Put a printed world map on your walls

All those fantastic designs for your walls is available not only on paper but also wood and metal. Apart from wood and metal, you can even get your design on canvas (along with a frame if you want), cloth or glass with suspension systems.

Choose one of the designs, select the material and get the world at your door. Get in on the wall, look at it every day and fuel your dreams. 

Pin the place you want to be in and make it a ritual to watch it, eat in front of it and work in front of it until your desire gets so strong that you start packing.

You can also have a scratch-it map. Use it to scratch off the cover from the places you already have been. Not everyone is perfect and so is the world.

Doesn’t this irregular shape makes it a beautiful thing to explore? It’s not symmetric, and no part of the world is a mirror image of another. You can’t know what a region has in its bag until you visit it. Expect the unexpected!

Pick your favorite material and theme

Track all the places you have visited on a printed world map.

The maps available are categorized according to the material used for printing, or you can browse the themes. There are categories like children, animals, fashion and black-and-white among others. 

After you have made your selection, choose from the available accessories and proceed to complete your order. You don’t even need an account for them. The product page displays the price, and it depends on the material chosen.

You can get a discount if you want to buy items in bulk – 20 or more. Send them an email for a quote. 

Other than a variety of world maps, there also some city maps. You can order these city layouts on all the materials that are available for the world maps.

They don’t have many cities though. If you got excited thinking of having streets of London or New York on your wall, you are up for a heart-break. 

As of now, Weltkarten.de only has few cities of Austriainfo-icon, Germanyinfo-icon, and the Netherlandsinfo-icon. So, you can decorate your wall with a roadmap of the capitals – Berlin, Vienna or Amsterdam.

You also need not worry about your chosen design getting out of stock. They print the world maps when you order them. That means that the world maps are always in stock. 

Be careful before you place your order. Since these maps are made-to-order, they don’t accept returns. Also, once your product has entered the production process, you can’t cancel your order.

Product delivery in Europeinfo-icon

As for the delivery of products, they deliver it to you in about six working days after the confirmation of payment. The delivery charge is €6.95 for each order. Since the products are not available ready-made, they don’t have an option for express delivery.

There is only a small problem with their delivery terms, by the way. 

This shop for world maps doesn’t ship everywhere in the world. They deliver only to areas within Germany and Austria. There is another site – Weltkarten.nl – which serves Belgium and Netherlands. You are lucky if you happen to live in one of these countries.


It doesn’t matter if you are a regular traveler or thinking to be one. In my view, a world map is a must. It would inspire you to visit new destinations, and also serve as a reminder to the places you already have visited. Bring the world into your home today!
