7 hours into her flight from Berlin to Denver, Jane is asked to fill out her customs forms. She rifles through her purse, looking for her receipts of the five souvenirs she purchased. Unfortunately, she can't find her list anywhere! She needs to claim her gifts to United States customs upon arrival. Help her sort out what she bought, how much it cost, what city she was in when she bought it, what attraction she was visiting, and how she got there before she lands!

Item: Postcard, Book, Audio Tape, Model, Calendar
Cost: 1, 5, 8, 10, 16 Euros
City: Berlin, Stuttgart, Munich, Frankfurt, Rothenburg
Attraction: Castle, Play, Zoo, Museum, Cathedral
Transportation: U-bahn (U-bahn is like the subway, on rails), Bergbahn (German for Mountain Train), Car (rented, of course!), Taxi, Bicycle

1. No item was purchased at an attraction or city with the same first letter as that item.

2. Neither the Zoo nor the castle were accessible by rail. Rothenburg is a small, walled city; cars and taxis are of no use there.

3. Stuttgart is known for its expensive taste. Therefore, the item purchased there was not less than 10 euros.

4. The items are as follows: The book, the item purchased at a castle, the item bought in Rothenburg, the item that cost the most, and the item purchased after a scenic train ride.

5. The "Bergbahn", or mountain train, was not required to get to the cathedral.

6. A car was rented on the trip that resulted in a souvenir for her favorite aunt that cost twice as much as the model she bought for her brother.

7. A camera was not allowed in either attraction that involved living things, so she bought a postcard to remember one of them and a calendar to remember the other.

8. The total cost of the souvenirs is divisible by the costs of each of these four different items: the one from Frankfurt, the gift bought in the cathedral, the one costing 1 Euro, and the one purchased after a taxi ride.

9. The gift from the cathedral cost half as much as the gift purchased after the taxi ride, which was not through Stuttgart.
