The "Bielefeld Conspiracy" - Does this place really exist?

The Bielefeld Conspiracy is a satire of conspiracy theories that originated in 1994 in the German Usenet, which claims that the city of Bielefeld does not actually exist, but is an illusion propagated by various forces. Originally an internet phenomenon, the conspiracy has since been represented in the city's marketing,[1] and referred to by Chancellor Angela Merkel.[2] @Curionic
