I wouldn't know about German directors, but some dude was born in Zweibrücken which is certainly West Germany. Any close?

Nope, but you'll know the director as he is active in Hollywood. His movies did often deal with water. And water is something the city is fomous for in some case...

Ooh, shiny me. Well then, this one shouldn't prove any difficult. Bonus points if you name the particular building, but am only looking for city.

Sorry, but no. It's a bit further from Moscow than Arnhem is.

I'd have guessed somewhere in northern Germany, but "further from Moscow than Arnhem is" means it's got to be Dutch, really. Or Belgian, I suppose. Dunno, looks Dutch to me.

Alkmaar, perhaps?

Well, I'll admit I googled for this out of curiosity, but since no-one seems to have got it, I'll answer and keep the game moving...

It looks like the Kamperbinnenpoort in Amersfoort to me - compare this pic: http://boldts.net/album/NL2-Amersfoort- ... oort.shtml
