Germany: Castles of Augustusburg and Falkenlust

On 7th August arrived not only three postcards, but also a cover from Germany.

Lighthouse (from set of two) (issued 03-07-2014)
gillyflower (issued 09-10-2008)
crocus (issued 11-08-2005)

In the cover were three postcards.
One of the cards shows the Castle of Falkenlust in Brühl in North Rhine-Westphalia. The castle of Falkenlust was built from 1729 to 1740 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 Augustusburg an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Another card shows again the Castle of Augustusburg.

The third card shows both Castles.

Thank You very much Karl!
