There are many ways to find how far is Germany from Russia, the distance calculated in kilometers and miles by Haversine formula - distance between coordinates: 51.164229 / 10.454119 (DE) and 55.000000 / 103.000000 (RU).


When trying to get from Germany to Russia, a traveler needs to cover the distance of 5730 km / 3560 mil. Surely, both DE and RU are big enough for the distance to vary considerably depending on how it is measured.

Commonly, the shortest distance is calculated as the crow flies, meaning the most direct path between two points. However, to get more precise results, it is important to specify the remoteness of these points. So, the distance is shown as a straight line between the departure coordinates of 51.164229 / 10.454119 and the arrival coordinates of 55.000000 / 103.000000.

Obviously, the fastest way to travel from Germany to Russia is by plane. Given the average speed of modern aircraft, the flight time is estimated as 6 hours, 49 minutes. Yet, the flight length may also vary based on a number of factors, such as the speed of a specific airliner, its route, and airports of departure and arrival.

Besides, the time is calculated without transfer activities, which may involve different modes of transportation. So, how far is it from Germany to Russia? The average figures for different transportation options are shown on this web page, calculated by a precise formula of spherical trigonometry.
