Germany: Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth

On Tuesday I got two cards one from Germany and one from Japan. The postcard from Germany shows the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth. It was built between 1745 and 1748 by Joseph Saint-Pierre and the interior is designed by Giuseppe Galli Bibiena and his son Carlo. The woman on the card is Wilhelmine of  Prussia, Margravine of Brandenburg-Bayreuth, a sister of Frederick the Great. The Margravial Opera House is since 2012 a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 Again with sweet Janosch stamp.

Thank you so much for this great card Natalie!
