I did this 2 days ago and got an answer. To quote from his 
mail:

"Uh... I thought Sturmbahn was german for a
military training course, or stormbaan as we call it
in Holland. Turns out it is 'bann', and the word
does not exists in german.
I speak German, but probably not as good as I
originally thought."

Kind regards
Nico
