  1. Hi CN,

    glad you are back because I missed reading your posts. I don't know where the 1st place is but my guess is you were somewhere in northern Germany - Lüneburger Heide, Friesland - am I close? But the red roofs throw me off. I thought those were usually found in southern Germany so my second guess is the Elsass. Looks like a very pretty area...

  2. You're right about the Lueneburger Heide, that's one of the pictures. :) Three of the pictures are places in Nordfriesland!

  3. Luneburger Heide for sure, the North Sea coast as well, but I'd really like to know where that enormous ship is.

  4. Picture #1 looks interesting: Bangalore, India?

  5. Place #1: Wernigerode?

    Place #2: Wernigerode in Saxony-Anhalt because of the letters "nigeröd".

    Place #3: Lower Saxony because of the Saxon Steed

    Place #5: Northern Germany (Lower Saxony or Saxony-Anhalt) because of
    a) the Low Saxon language:
    "En Vörbild is för uns dat Swien: Dat wiest uns, as wie nich schöllt sien!"
    (High German translation: "Das Schwein ist für uns ein Vorbild: Es zeigt uns, wie wir nicht sein sollten!")
    b) the Saxon Steed.

    Place #7: somewhere in Denmark because of the words "Skind & Pind"

    Place #10: Denmark because of the Danish flag

    Picture #8, #9 and #11: North Frisia or Denmark because of the water related theme and the order of appearance

  6. I know that ship in picture 11 but don't remember exactly where I've seen it... Is it at the Deutsches Schifffahrtsmuseum in Bremerhaven?

    And place #9 could be the Eidersperrwerk near Tönning?

  7. You guys are awesome.

    #2 is indeed Wernigerode.
    No one mentioned which one they thought was the Lueneburger Heide but it's probably obvious it's #4. :)

    #3 is, yes, a town in Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen, I'm actually better with the German names for the states...). #5 is also a town in Niedersachsen!

    #7 and #10 are in Denmark :)

    #9 is the Eidersperrwerk!

    My next post is going to give away #1.

  8. Last one looks like the Vasa to me. In Stockholm.


I love commenters!
