Is there any solution for this problem? 
I finally build my first map with index option.
When I search for streets or crossroads I can choose the Country and the city. I also found the City Dresden,DEU (http://snailrun.de/images/MapSearch/1.jpg), but also all suburbs, located in Dresden (Plauen in Dresden, http://snailrun.de/images/MapSearch/5.jpg).
When I try to search for streets in Dresden I only get a few of them. When I search in Plauen, Dresden I find other streets.
