Jump to last reply

Guess the city or region by clues:

1- The Florence on the Elbe

2- City with Germany's largest grouping of Third Reich relics, just a few kms south of town at Hitler's and the Third Reich's vast parade grouns - stadium where the Fuhrer famously reviewed goose-stepping troops from a balcony is still there, blacony and all

3- Saxon Switzerland

4- Where Leonardo Da Vinci died.

5- This Loire chateau/town was famous for one King Louis' infamous Hanging Cages where enemies of the king were literally hung out in darkness in cages not tall enough to stand up in for years sometimes.

6- This region of France once included half of Switzerland

7- Waterfalls near Meiringen, Switzerland where Sherlock Holmes and arch enemy Dr Moriarity fought, with the eveil Doctor presumably tumbling to his death in the roaring waters far below the belevedere they fought on.

8 - The Big Wheel (as my grandma from this town used to call it) has been a mainstay in this city's Prater Park for over a century.

9- European capital city known for its Bear Pits for the critter it gets its name from.

10 - Lady Chatterlee shed her clothes for a horseback parade thru this English city.

No cheating allowed - Big Brother is watching!
