Ground state properties of heavy deformed nuclei in the rare earth region are described in the framework of the relativistic Hartree approximation. Both linear and non-linear parameter sets of the lagrangian are used. The non-linear sets reproduce the experimentally observed binding energies, the charge radii and the quadrupole moments, with the same quality as non-relativistic density dependent mean field calculations with Skyrme forces.
