Good quiz, but too much time IMO. Please accept Mönchengladbach as a type-in for "home of the football team called Borussia."

The dot on the map indicates Dortmund though. Mönchengladbach is farther southwest.

Hmm - absolutely right. I did not even look at the map when answering most questions and felt disappointed because my Borussia wasn't accepted. My bad!

It should be made clear that German names don't work in this quiz - or was it just the few that I tried?

However, the time limit was luckily generous enough to always try different spellings, so I managed 41/41 points in the end.

For this question: Bremen: this Grimms' fairy tale tells the story of four animal coming to this town

The town asked for is Bremen, but it doesn't work. Question should ask for the title of the story, not the location.

Big factual mistake!

The November Revolution was 1918. Goodbye Lenin plays during the fall of the Berlin Wall, which was 1989. Though it also happened in November, the "November revolution" is the one in 1918

Saar Basin should be accepted in lieu of Saarland. This is the only one I missed, as I was always taught the former....and Wiki does the same.
