Welcome to the most comprehensive database of its kind in the world. It contains 101960 locations with over name changes once, and 5,500 twice and more. All locations are EAST of the Oder and Neisse rivers and are based on the borders of the eastern provinces in Spring 1918. Included in this database are the following provinces: Eastprussia, including Memel, Westprussia, Brandenburg, Posen, Pomerania, and Silesia. It currently list most towns or points, points being: Mills, some bridges, battlefields, named trees, cenotaphs etc. As more information becomes available, (books, maps, your input etc) this database will be updated.

Built on the northern part of an island in the river Spree, Berlin Cathedral is the city's largest religious building and holds great significance for the Protestant Church in Germany. Year after year, it attracts many thousands of visitors from all over Germany and abroad – and of all faiths and beliefs. Built between 1894 and 1905 to plans by Julius Raschdorff in the Italian high renaissance and baroque style, the cathedral is one of the most important church buildings in Germany. The main entrance is reached through the pleasure garden.
Part of the Wetterstein mountain range, the Zugspitze massif straddles the frontier between Germany and Austria and is surrounded by steep valleys. The eastern summit, at 2,962 meters, is crowned by a gilded cross and can be reached by the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn , a cog railway, or by cable car. Another great way to enjoy this area of outstanding natural beauty is aboard the Tiroler Zugspitzbahn , a railway that runs to the Zugspitzkamm station at 2,805 meters. From here, the journey can be continued via a cable car to Zugspitz-Westgipfel Station at 2,950 meters with its excellent panoramic restaurant. A highlight of the journey is the chance to walk through an 800-meter-long tunnel, complete with viewing windows, to the Schneefernerhaus station at the top of the Bavarian cog railroad, from where you can ascend the eastern summit with its viewing platforms.
