    Allright, given it a couple of days, but as there's no answers:

    Kolossi Castle Cyprus.

    Well, it's in Texas. Looking for the name of the village though.

    Is it such a famous village that I am supposed to know it's name?
    Is it a landmark or something?

    It is hard to say anything without giving it away, which I would rather not, considering there are enough clues in the pic to at least have a good guess, even if a search won't return this particular view. I wouldn't expect non-americans to know of it, unless perhaps form a certain comic strip (which is how I knew of it ).

    I won't hold the thread up any longer.

    The answer was Langtry, Texas. The building in the image is the Roy Bean visitor center.

    This must definitely be a place related to WWI, but I suck at this game, so I cannot do better

    That's why I suck at this game

    then it must be some remains of a fort/town from copper age, maybe?

    Gonna guess Dannevirke, even though I'm quite sure it's not.

    This site is thought to have been in use until the early 40s of the first century AD.

    No, but you're very much on the right track.

    Allright I'm going to give this to Lol. It is indeed an Iron Age hill fort in England. Not Maiden Castle, though, but Old Oswestry in Shropshire.

    Beyond being a hill fort, not much to go on in the pic, but it's a major one so could have been guessed I think. Perhaps not.

    Maybe either a) make it less hard (such a little part of the hillfort that it's not even recognisable as one; less than half a building from a Texas village no one has ever heard about before - Imagine me posting a brick and have you guess the random building) or b) give more hints when you see people can't guess it, so they'll have a chance.

    In this particular instance, and the last one, there's no reasonable chance anyone can get there without recognizing the specific place. Which means it's no longer "Guess where?" challenge but rather a "Recognise it?".

    You can tell by my frustration that I tried on good faith. I like hard challenges, but I'm not going to charge windmills anymore.

    Thanks for the feedback. I grant you that absolute positive identification is hard, because you're not likely to find the same or similar viewpoint as in the pictures shown. However, why I assume I'd post something unguessable?

    For Langtry one: 6 out of the 10 first search results for 'texas bean town'.
    For Oswestry: 5 out of the first 10 search results for 'hill fort' (which I suspect at least Lol identified)
