Enjoy some German city trivia!

10 comments
I ran across this quiz on Sporcle today and thought others might enjoy it too! Twenty-five German cities are listed, and you must decide which city matches the given clue.  Some of it is stuff tourists would know, but some is a little tougher. I got 24 out of 25 - click here to try to beat me! :)

  1. Hoo -- harder than it sounds!

    Good on you with your 24. I got a 21.

  2. Thanks for reminding me of Sporcle. I got 24 too. Who knew (or cared) that Kraftwerk came from Düsseldorf?!

  3. This was Margaret from Transblawg, but I don't understand your OpenID thing.

  5. Bullshit! I don't care what Wikipedia says, Kraftwerk totally came from Stuttgart. Unless that was Devo.

  6. Dang, 14/25. But at least I picked up a few bits of trivia for the next Quiz Night. :)

  7. Devo is German?

    @Margaret: Yeah, I am not happy with blogger's commenting options. This is the 2nd-most-lax option, but the most lax option allows anonymous commenting, which attracts trolls. I'd like an options that allows people who leave a name/site to comment but not people who are totally anon. I know there's little difference, but it seems to usually be enough to put off trolls.

  8. They forgot these questions:

    -- What town does Händlmaier mustard come from?
    -- What was the HRE's home base for 140 years?
    -- Where's the (current) Pope from?

  9. I only got 5, but I learned a lot. There are two or three I should have guessed based on things I *DO* know.
