I'm surprised people scored so well in this quiz. My geography is pretty good, but I've only ever heard of Zurich, Geneva and Bern!

Basel is distinct because it's at the border where Germany, France and Switzerland meet. I recognized the name because I've seen it on a Jetpunk quiz before

Definitely agree. I often score over 90 percentile and in this case also didn´t make up more than 3. I also heard of Lausanne because of Lausanne peace treaty, which ended Turkish war of independence after WWI, but I thought it was rather an quarter or palace in France like Versailles, Saint-Germain, Neuilly-sur-Seine or Sévres.

Sevres was the palace for the peace treaty with defeated Ottoman Empire in 1919, I guess in 1923 it was more suitable to choose a neutral place

Yeah, that only got me a 7/10. Apparently there aren't any cities in Switzerland named "Grasshoppers" or "Young Boys". :-(
