Germany: St Michael's Church in Hildesheim

Today I got six postcards from Germany.

One of them shows again the St Michael's Church in Hildesheim.
I bought this card when I recently visited the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Hildesheim.


Stamp:
Glücksburg Castle (from set of two) (issued 02-01-2013)


I also bought some other cards of the St Michael's Church.
The first of them shows the interior with the painted wooden ceiling. North of the Alps there is no other painted wooden ceiling like the one of the St Michael's Church.


The second card shows the altar of Mary. It was created around 1520.


The last card shows the Woehl-organ. The Woehl-organ was created in 1999 by Gerald Woehl. Recently the Organ Construction and Organ Music was added to the German Nationwide Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
