Can I use "Fläche" in this context: Menschen aus aller Welt haben diese Fläche bereist.

    No. Fläche means area only in the sense of a measure. – Janka Jan 8 '18 at 8:20
  • To be more exakt: Fläche emphasizes area or flatness. Region emphasizes the location of a region. – Kilian Foth Jan 9 '18 at 7:32
  • @Kilian Foth: Fläche is not necessarily flat, for instance Kugeloberfläche, Zylinderoberfläche. – Uwe Jan 9 '18 at 12:25
  • @Uwe: There is a difference between Fläche (plain) and Oberfläche (surface). Kugelfläche doesn't work. – raznagul Jan 10 '18 at 10:58

No, "Fläche" does not work here. You could use "Gebiet" or "Gegend", though.

  • Region might also be a good fit. – raznagul Jan 10 '18 at 10:59
  • @raznagul yes, but "Region" was already mentioned in the title. – Uwe Jan 10 '18 at 11:54
