Final clue was rather tricky. I know the US has many Plymouths, but took a while to recall Springfield.

I'd heard it before and knew it was something to do with the Simpsons but as I have never watched that show I tried Smithfield and a couple of near misses and never arrived at Springfield.

The same for me, tried all sorts of variations with Stras- and Strass-, -burg, -borg, -bourg but missed the correct answer.

Also got stuck at München for a while.

Great quiz. Had them all but had to go back for Stasbourg - because I couldn't remember the spelling when I got to it - went back and never did get it spelled correctly before time ran out. Though I tried the "bourg" ending I think I did it with two "s" each time, unlike "berg" and "burg" and "burgh" which I tried with single and double s... ah well, at least American English isn't alone in its too many variations on spelling!
