Easy-peasy (when you live in Germany). Funny thing is that almost all answers were in alphabetical order.

You beat me by a lot. I've never been there, either, but my great-grandmother came from Mecklenburg, another ancestor came from the Palatinate, still another from Schleswig-Holstein. At least I got those correct along with some of the easier ones.

Not necessarily closer to the sea, but lower in altitude (which in this case is the same thing, obviously).

Oh yeah the lower/upper Egypt thing confused me for a long time until I remembered that the nile flows north so the southern part of the region would be higher, or 'upper'

Why is Lower Saxony higher than normal Saxony? Was that some sort of punitive measure imposed in the 40's?

Lower in this case refers to elevation. Lower Saxony is right next to the Netherlands (one of the "Low Countries") many areas of which are below sea level.

North-South is completely different from Higher-Lower. The former is an arbitrary consensus. For the later, you just have to pay attention to the direction the rivers flow. It's the same with the Upper and Lower Egypt.

The German word "nieder" translates to "low" in English so it's not really a difference.

Lower saxony has only one region with an elevation of more than 1,500 ft. Saxony has about 50 of them, going up to about 4,000 ft (1.215 m). It's only a point of landscape

Think higher versus lower, not upper versus lower. It's about the elevation.

It's more about the direction of the rivers. "North" wasn't always defined as "Up", and early cultures my see the place, where a river spring from as Up and the place where it flows into the sea as Down. (Afterall, Water is flowing down). Most major rivers in Germany flow towards north (Rhine, Elbe, Oder), so Up = Lower. It's the same way in Egypt, where the Nile defines Upper Egypt as the South part.
