    Hmm, it is a little hard to understand what's what in those groups of mountains. Is that the neighboring Kula Kangri then?

    I am so sorry, but I am going to give up. I have found multiple sources identifying that as a part of the Karjiang group of peaks. There may be some misunderstanding somewhere, but I don't know what to do anymore.

    I think you're right. The pic I was using may have been mislabeled
    Makes it all the harder to find, so well done.

    Edit. I'd almost rep you for it .... if TWC would let me.

    It interests me a little how it was labeled. But anyhow, let us get back to the church business.

    It is actually not in Germany or any other German-speaking country, but I got a very German vibe out of it myself as well when I first saw it.

    If you can rep me for the mountain on behalf of Muizer, Morticia, that would be much appreciated.

    Done. Interesting, the traffic signs seemed familiar.

    The church looked familiar and my first thought was Helsinki. If that wasn't correct it'd have taken me a whole lot more time.

    I've been there many times, so this one's easy. Too easy. I'll let the others have a go.

    I took a look around in street view, and I must say it is a beautiful location. We can only dream of places like that architecturally.

    It is Hoorn. I can't actually recall whether I've been there. Would be weird if I hadn't as I've been on holiday in the region multiple times and I do know I visited nearby Enkhuizen for example.

    Over to Iskar.

    No, but the category is already the right one.

    Is this a British hillfort?

    Edit: don't think it can be, looking for well-preserved hillforts doesn't show a single one with remaining stonework. I guess the category is "ancient Greek cities" anyway.

    Traffic signs are mostly identical or very similar in much of the world, and especially in Europe (obviously the UK is totally different).

    Have a gander at this and this to get an idea. When I was in France walking among the streets felt just like in Germany.

    I was considering a somewhat wider category.
