  1. A friend of mine has to know about the river Pockau in eastern-Germany.
    But we couldn't locate it on a map.

    From wich river is this a side river ? Through wich famous place does it runs through ?
    Coördinats if possible ?

    (I don't know why she needs this information for, I'm just trying to impress her ;) )

    Thanks neigbours.
     
  2. I'm not German, but, I like Geography. I thought I was pretty good, but, it took me a while to find this elusive devil. It's in the Erzgebirge Mountains; I knew that. :rolleyes: Now, as your homework assignment, YOU must find the Erzgebirge Mountain range. (hee hee)

  3. Bump.

    Would anyone like a nice tour of the Ruhr Valley, The Teutoberg Forest* or Neuschwanstein?**

    My father was based near Oberamergau after WWII. Does anybody care? :( :D

    * The site where 3 Roman Legions were lost to a great Germanic Warrior, circa 9 A.D.
