I learned all of these in German, so it was difficult for me to translate them all. Still got 100% though. I love you Germany! s. America

I think you should not let it count when only the first half of the double names is typed. The latter part is proper to the Land's name just as much as the first part is. And: While Vorpommern and Anhalt are smaller than Mecklenburg and Saxony respective, Palatinate is about same size as Rhineland, and Westfalen, Holstein and Württemberg are even bigger than their counterparts. It's a little bit like letting Papua count when Papua-Neuguinea is meant or letting Alsace get through for Alsace-Lorraine. But it's nice to see that their original names are accepted.

Can you maybe include the abbreviations of the states? Like BW for Baden-Württemberg or NRW for Nordrhein-Westfalen (At least those two are used more often then saying the whole name. Thanks

Sehr gutes Quiz! :) Didn’t quite get them all... when you get all the former DDR ones straight away but forget some of the biggest West Germany ones ‘cause you haven’t studied them as much #historystudentproblems ;)

I got every one of them right apart from Sachsen-Anhalt. Kudos for accepting their German name! (I'm from Hungary and that is how we learned them in school)

Nedersachsen should be accepted for Lower Saxony

Not sure why, that's not the name in English or German, or even in Lower German.

It's the Dutch version, but I still prefer to call it Niedersachsen. Lower Saxony looks just wrong.
