DM/BW-195 - is this Zunderberg or Zundelberg?


#1

This summit is being activated today. It was previously named as Zunderberg, now I see it named as Zundelberg in the database. Which name is correct does anyone know for sure?

Based on the hits on Google for both names and Google maps, Zundelberg is the correct name.

The Bundesamt für Kartographie und Geodäsie has “Zundelberg”.

Many countries have an official list. For us, it is the US Board on Geographic Names.
