It's kind of weird to think that the unifying Germanic kingdom no longer exists and its historic heartland is no longer part of any German state. I suppose that's the price you pay for starting a genocidal war with Stalin's Soviet Union. Pomerania and Silesia still persist as geographic regions but East Prussia has been scrubbed off the map.

Haha, "Ich bin ein Berliner", how to try and make a Germany quiz Amerocentric. Jokes, jokes. For Bonn, that's rather unclear; it was the capital of West Germany, not East Germany. And, it's not as if both didn't lay claim to the name Germany. Most people will get it but it's a nit to pick.

There never was a "West Germany". It was Germany and East Germany. West Germany is an English thing.

This is an English quiz. I also don't think that you are correct that East Germany was known as East Germany in East Germany.

If I recall correctly from growing up there in the 80s, they were known as BRD (Bundesrepublik Deutschland) and DDR (Deutsche Demokratsche Republik), or the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic. I don't remember any Germans ever saying "West Germany." "East Germany" (Ostdeutschland) maybe occasionally, but it was usually referred to as the "DDR."

Yeah yeah, it's an English quiz. So I guess the answer is acceptable. :P Btw people still use East Germany "Ostdeutschland" or the East "der Osten" to refer to the former DDR region sometimes. But hey if they still get a part of the money I as a German earn after all this time to "build up the broken infrastructure" of course people will use that.

Growing up in Austria, I used to say "Westdeutschland" or "BRD" and "Ostdeutschland" or "DDR". Both versions were often used and always understood.

For what exactly? The W one? Schnitzel is meat, a sausage in Germany can either be the sausage itself like a Frankfurter or sausages like salami or ham, often cut into slices.

Wiener Schnitzel is only not accepted, because the correct answer is Wurst. They asked for the German word for sausage, which is Wurst. It can be served cut up into slices or as a whole, but Schnitzel is a breaded cutlet you can get in various meats (pork, turkey, veal), meaning, the meat has a covering of bread crumbs. That's why :)

Minor nitpick learned at the Neanderthal museum: A Neanderthal fossil had already been found in Gibraltar before Neanderthal, but it wasn't recognised as a different species at the time.

I tried 20 to 30 reasonable spellings for gesundheit. I don't know why anyone would know the correct spelling. It seems like reasonable approximations should be accepted.

Well, Gesundheit is the only spelling for the word. In English, the word means health, and I don't think the computer would accept an incorrect spelling of health either. And I'm pretty sure more than 100 million people know how to spell this word, due to there being around 200 million speakers worldwide (this includes native speakers, people that speak German as a second language, and people that speak German as a foreign language). So there is no other reasonable spelling for Gesundheit except Gesundheit. :)

If this site followed the rule that all answers must be spelled correctly, then all misspellings would be invalid, and many misspellings are allowed on this site for many answers. Even answers that are purely English and US-centric accept various misspellings. It is up to the quiz creator's discretion. That being said, you have to at least be somewhat close to the true spelling. Not all misspellings can possibly be accounted for.

You should allow "Rhein" for the river - it's the German spelling of "Rhine"
