I just took this list of gaWC study: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_city

In the case of Ludwigfhafen I inserted the name Mannheim, but it is possible to type the two.

What I wanted to demonstrate through this quiz is that demographic dimension is not synonym of importance. Often lesser cities are more important than bigger ones. It is not surprising that the Ruhr is not considered and Berlin is not first.

Ruhr is not a city...

tbr it is an area which is densly populated and consists out of cities like Dortmund, Bochum, Essen and a lot more...

and also it is hard to seperate this area from the cologne/düsseldorf/rhineland area...
