Switzerland Quiz!

Sun Feb 11, 2001 3:42 am

Not a quiz about a US state again...

1. Who's the national hero of Switzerland?

2. What's the highest mountain in S.?

3. What's the capital of Switzerland?

4. How many people lives in Zurich?

5. How many inhabitants has Switzerland?

6. Name the biggest Swiss plane producer.

7. Name four Swiss airlines.

8. A Swiss player in the NHL?

9. What's the Swiss Air Force display team?


OK, for the Swiss A.net members it wouldn't be very difficult  Sleepy
But the others: how much do you know about Switzerland?

William Tell for number 1
This shows you I am a real obsessed hockey fan: David Aebischer, the backup goalie for the Colorado Avalanche is Swiss, and the Maple Leafs picked Luca Cereda last year in the first round.
