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

Nice one, good job. I agree with Jerry though, and I think the Turkey question is a bit unclear too.

Indeed it would be great to see a source for the Turkey question.

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?

Yes, it's always called Bodensee in German. Lovely place by the way.

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

"Schwarzwald" should definetly be good as "Black Forest" ^^
