The Z question doesn't quite make sense - maybe ask what is Germany's highest point?

No source needed. Just walk around a major German city and you won't doubt it. Not complaining, just saying.

Arguments for and against accepting "Konstanz" for Lake Constance?

I missed it because I had thought the lake shared a name with the town - now that I'm looking more closely perhaps nobody spells it Lake Konstanz? Only Constance or Bodensee?

For a German, "Kiel-Canal" is also quite confusing. In Germany said canal/channel is solemnly known as NORD-OSTSEE-KANAL
