Euro Travel Quiz # 38

Jump to last reply

Back again by popular demand! (Thanks to you both!)

1- The large famous castle near Maidstone (Kent), England is known amongst other things for its Dog Collar Museum?

2- every august 1st the Switzerland celebrates the birth of the Swiss Confederation in this meadow where the original confedration was decreed - what is the name of the meadow and what lake does it overlook?

3- Switzerland's Chocolate Train is a special tourist train that runs between XXXXXX and XXXXX and then onto XXXXXX before returning to where it started.

4- The Battle of Alesia or Siege of Alesia took place in September, 52 BC, around the Gallic oppidum of Alesia, a major town centre and hill fort of the Mandubii tribe. It was fought by an army of the Roman Republic commanded by Julius Caesar, aided by cavalry commanders Mark Antony, Titus Labienus and Gaius Trebonius, against a confederation of Gallic tribes united under the leadership of Vercingetorix of the Arverni. It was the last major engagement between Gauls and Romans, marking the turning point of the Gallic Wars in favour of Rome. The Siege of Alesia is considered one of Caesar's greatest military achievements and a classic example of siege warfare and investment. The battle of Alesia can safely be described as marking the end of Celtic dominance in France, Belgium, Switzerland and Northern Italy. (Wiki)
Q - Where can you see the actual battle area of Alesia (what region of what country)?

5- What European capital city is but about a one-hour train ride from Vienna?

6- To get to Fountains Abbey by foot from Ripon, Engalnd you can walk thru this large park that includes the ruined abbey as a part of it - what is the name of the park?

7- When Mark Twain climbed Switzerland's Mt Rigi (before there was a train or gondola going to the summit) to catch the sunrise once there he complained about the incessant tooting of this instrument? (To me the Swiss equivalent of Bag Pipes - which emit an obnoxious screeching - bag pipes I read in a book on Ireland -" originated in Ireland who gave them to the Scots, who never got the joke."

8- Folks without a fixed address can get mail in Europe at post offices with the European equivalent of General Delivery - which is called in many countries, such as France: ???

9- Paris and other French cities has things dubbed 'Vespachiens' which is a play on what word and what are they for?

10 - Name the concentration camp - Nazi - about 20 miles north of Berlin? You can take a train or S-Bahn to the city of the same name and then walk about a half-mile to the memorial's entrance.

Good luck - winner gets a valuable prize to be announced later (plus S & H)!

Percy if available will act as abitrator of any disputes and judge correctness of answers!
