This is just so that all your information is accurate:

There is no such town as a "Linsberg". The town is called LINSBURG. I notice that not only Americans, but English-speaking people in general, constantly confuse the endings "-berg" and "-burg", even though they are pronounced completely differently, and mean two completely different things -- "Berg" is the German word for "mountain", and "Burg" is the German word for "castle".
