    After two and av half months search .
    The city must be:
    Weilburg.

    The mentioned tunel is:
    Weilburger Schifffahrtstunnel

    Weilburger Schifffahrtstunnel is the oldest and longest navigable ship tunnel in Germany.
    It passes under a length of 195 meters the Mühlberg, on which the city Weilburg is located.
    The tunnel was built between 1844 and 1847.

      yes you're right , it's Weilburg.
      searching on google for the gate ,nothing came up .
      i thought it was a arc the triumf thing,,search for that nothing, search for triomf tor (german) nothing ,sieger tor also nothing, so even for me it became a hunt for images and names for the gate.
      finally i found '' land tor '' and bingo, but i realise that it would be a hard task if not knowing where to go.
      than i saw the shipstunnel images ,and thought it was better to gave you all that cleu.

      red line, i drove
      bleu line ,the shipstunnel
      yellow circle , the gate
      orange star ,about the place i make the image
      purple Arrow, direction to the gate of the image

      so Oistein ,torture us with the next puzzle

        CONGRATULATIONS!

        That was a difficult one--- googling so many things and getting lost in the WWW. I just could not find out the right place!

              I have not time to search tonight but thank you Thijs to refresh this thread. Try to resolve it tomorrow. And as usual, first question: are we in the Nederlands?

              No ,we're not.
              But the clouds are

            It is Belgium, the N474 from Rieme in direction Klein-Rusland. That is just a few kilometers North of Gent. It is along the canal Terneuzen Gent. It is face to faco to a big Arcelor Mittal factory. The area on the left is demolished currently, looks like a former refinery.

            Thank you for the clue with the Dutch clouds, that made it easy to find, because the direction was clear and there are not much places left with such masses of coal.

                That was a good idea. I will also post one, which is not too difficult, i guess. But you have to find out the exact location. Where are we sitting here?

                    No. It is not Stuttgarter Strasse. There are four different locations, Böblingen, Ditzingen, Feuerbach and Esslingen. It is possible to identify the exact location. Try to find out, how.

                    That is correct. These wichtel figures are only in ditzingen. Over to you, yves!

                  Great! Business is picking up on What Place Is It.

                    Oh so much fun trying to find the places. Sometimes they are easy, and sometimes more difficult.

                    In this last one, the first thing I thought of was the stable where Jesus was born... in Jerusalem. But I guess, that is definitely NOT correct.
