Nice quiz. Too bad for the Q... the only word that comes to my mind is Quelle (= spring/source), but I have no idea of a question for that.

Since German Lidl (retailer) has spread over a lot of Europe, they sell a mineral water called Saskia. It says "Quelle Löningen" on the bottles. So you *could* ask "Where does Saskia water come from?" I guess it'd be too hard for those who never shopped at Lidl though.

Most water comes from a spring so the answer to where Saskia water comes from would be Löningen Quelle rather than Quelle. For Q you could ask what Max Planck got his noble price for: Quantum theory/hyposis.

All I can think is German cream cheese-- quark. It's delicious on toast with some jam on top.

Quedlinburg might be a possible answer. Its a medieval town, more than 1000 years old, with areas that contribute to the UNESCO world heritage. It's probably hard to guess, but then, might be worth a quick look up on wiki for those who don't know it yet. :)

Can anyone tell me why I just lost 400 points? Does it have to do with the new design on the stats page? Not a fan by the way, though I still love this site.

It's a bug. I'm looking into it. Not sure if the old points total or the new one is correct

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.
