Someone is evidently in on the cover-up it seems. Also have you ever been there or know someone who has been there? The wiki page was obviously fabricated by the government

It's a real city, OH MY GOSHHHHHHH. If you haven't been there or know someone who has been there, it doesn't mean it's a fake city. If you haven't been to Paris or someone you know hasn't been to Paris, then does that mean Paris doesn't exist?

The worst thing about it being the fact that when you drive on the Autobahn really close to the city, you see absolutely nothing... Never seen 300k "people" (aliens?) hiding with such efficiency.

It seems that either the numbers or the order for Liepzig are incorrect. With the currently stated population it should be above Bremen.

Frankfurt is the biggest airport in Germany (and one of the biggest in all of Europe) and Munich is the stereotypical German tourist attraction with Oktoberfest, Lederhosen, Dirndls, Beer and the Neuschwanstein castle not too far away.

Yeah, what Chouyren said. Frankfurt is the financial hub of Germany (and one of the biggest in Europe), so I imagine lots of American corporate types need regular flights in and out.

To those who think Bielefeld doesn't exist, it is northeast from Cologne/Dusseldorf. The Bielefeld Conspiracy was supposed to be a joke, now the city is offering 1 million Euros to prove that it doesn't exist.
