Germany: Castle of Augustusburg

On 5th August arrived three postcards: two from Germany and one from Japan.

One of the cards from Germany shows the Castle of Augustusburg in Brühl in North Rhine-Westphalia. The castle of Augustusburg was built from 1725 onwards at the behest of Clemens August of Bavaria, the Archbishop-Elector of Cologne. It belongs to the most important baroque and rococo buildings in Germany. Since 1984 it is together with the Castle of Falkenlust an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
