Germany: Island Neuwerk

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

One of the cards from Germany shows the Lighthouse on the Island Neuwerk. Neuwerk is located on the North Sea coast and is an exclave of the German State of Hamburg. The Wadden Sea around Neuwerk is since 2011 an extension of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Wadden Sea".
I got this card a few weeks ago in an envelope.

With matching stamp:
Lighthouses (from set of two) (issued 10-06-2010)
with a special postmark celebrating the 200th anniversary of the lighthouse on Neuwerk

Thank You very much Claas for sending me the card in a cover!
