Where is Middle Earth?
Germany is a good region for middle earth
Germany is a country that isn't all that large, but considering that it has the second largest population in Europe, it has a lot of different and varied landscapes. Central Germany features rough and somewhat patternless hilly and mountainous countryside, while southern Germany features mountain terrain and some hilly scapes, and the north is part of the north European plain and has some cold areas. As far as culture, the population is 91.5 percent German, 2.4 percent Turkish, and the remaining 6.1 percent is a mix of many other cultures. In Germany, the official language is German, or course with the usual few who speak another language.
Why NOT Germany?
Meadow in Germany
In The Hobbit, the shire, where the hobbits live, is a peaceful meadow that is somewhat hilly so that the hobbit holes can be formed. And Germany has plenty of those kinds of meadows
Forest in Germany
This forest in Germany is the exact kind of forest that I imagined the dwarves and Gandalf running through escaping the bad creatures when Bilbo is "lost"... It is a very mysterious looking forest that anyone can imagine a bunch of fairy tale characters running through.
Mt. Watzmann in Germany
This is the crumbly mountains that looks like the one that the company went on together during their journey to get to Smaug the dragon's treasure mountain. It is crumbly, like in the book, and it isn't exactly very safe.
