cover from Germany

Today I got not only five postcards but also a cover from Germany.

Peony (issued 04-12-2014)

Inside were three postcards.
They all show different views of Idar-Oberstein in Rhineland-Palatinate. Idar-Oberstein was created in 1933 when Idar, Oberstein, Tiefenstein and Algenrodt were amalgamated. Idar-Oberstein is known as gemstone and garrison town.

A famous sight of Idar-Oberstein is the German Gemstone Museum (shown in the lower left corner). It was founded in 1859 and shows 10000 gems.

Other famous sights are the Crag Church and the Oberstein Castle.

Thank You very much Simone!
