i have seen/played several maps now, and usually i believed that rivers/mountains really existed if it was a non-fiction map. Why should anyone add impassables where none exists? Gameplay would be different, but for all other maps, impassables didn´t come out of nowhere just for gameplay balance. And in this case (Germany map) i don´t see any reason given by gameplay for that strange impassable. I think it´s just geographical nonsense which can´t be undone because gameplay must be the same in revamp. Of course i could make a USA map , moving the Rookie Mountains to Florida .... but .... would that make sense? Would you agree with that if i say gameplay would be better after the change?
Seuless - that impassable exists because this is a revamp of a previous map. No one is allowed to change the gameplay, and the original map included some impassables and other territories that were wildly inaccurate. People are doing the best with what they've got, but by the rules of a revamp those impassables cannot disappear.
As for impassables that came out of nowhere for gameplay balance - see Brazil.
