All the ones near Luxembourg make the list but maybe there is no data for Luxembourg?

It's way more inland than the others on the list though. And there's some foothills in between there and the sea, Apennines, isn't there? So that would explain the difference. I'd expect there to be data for that one as it's not all about big cities.

Ardennes – the Apennines are on the Italian peninsula.

Luxembourg is not more inland than Vaduz, and there aren't any mountains to stop clouds over Brussels or Amsterdam from getting to Luxembourg..

Indeed, but Vaduz is located in the mountains, which are a factor for cloud formation and maybe even block sunlight themselves.

Microclimate depends on many things, as pointed out in sillie's and georgekotz's comments.

According to Wikipedia, Luxembourg has 1725 hours of sunshine per year. Not much lower than the nearby capitals that made the list, but, as sillie points out, the inland location behind the Ardennes probably makes the difference!

Tried Tallinn and Riga, no go, so didn't bother with Vilnius. When will I learn?

I tried Riga, Tallinn, Stockholm, Helsinki and Oslo and started wondering if there's a bug with the quiz or if I have problems with my laptop / internet connection since none of these worked. I was expecting that Scandinavia will have much fewer sunshine hours than, let's say, Paris. I still got them all in the end, but it was more challenging than I was expecting.

Same here Qikiq. And I also can't believe that Paris gets less sun than Stockholm or Helsinki.

Nordic capitals may get less sunshine in the winter, but midnight sun at the rate of 20 hours / day in the summer makes up for that deficit nicely

I wonder where Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast would rank on this list if they were included? Very surprised that Paris was there yet no Scandinavian Countries. Vilnius only one that I missed.
