Is there any free (or not expensive) source of Digital elevation model of Europe or Germany with the resolution of 10 meters or better and vertical accuracy of +-5m or better?

For Germany you can order the DGM10 from the Federal Agency for Cartogrpahy.

The Official Elevation Datasets are available in 10 m to 1000 m spatial resolution with a height accuracy of 0.5-2 m.

  • It lists a € 291000 price tag for me (plus VAT plus shipping costs). I'd not call that "free (or non-expensive)".

    5 years ago you could order it free. I can still find some provinces (Bundesländer) offering it free. But you are right - the complete Germany DGM10 is not offered free anymore.
