7. Place Names as Adjectives

German has a very simple way of using place names as adjectives: add the ending –er. Note that no other adjective endings are added, regardless of case or number.

das Genfer Abkommen the Geneva Convention
der Hamburger Flughafen the Hamburg airport

These adjectives can also be used as nouns:

der Berliner the Berliner (male from Berlin)
die Berlinerin the Berliner (female from Berlin)
