Where in the World (204)

Where in the World could have proven quite challenging were it not for a distinctive building on the skyline. This building was such a landmark that allied bomber crews were told not to bomb it as it was much more useful as a guiding landmark on the run in to the city. The building, for nine years prior to the completion of the Eiffel Tower the world’s tallest, is the cathedral in Cologne (Köln).

Congratulations to Simon (@similtiades), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury) and Davide (@travelling_dave) who all identified the city as Cologne.


If you enjoy these weekly puzzles then you might also enjoy a whole quiz of them. Instead of cities to identify there are iconic landscapes and natural features. You will find the quiz here.

In four weeks time I will be posting Where in the World (208) which is the 4th anniversary of these distorted cities. Mobile Solar Chargers Ltd have kindly agreed to supply prizes for that week’s competition. I am already road testing two of the chargers and a review will follow shortly. Suffice to say that I am impressed with the product so far.

This week the twisted photograph is a fairly typical and recognisable scene from the city to be identified. It is a scene often depicted in guidebooks but is not the most iconic scene from this city.
