Germany: Orangery Palace in Potsdam

Yesterday I got three postcards: one from Germany, one from Estonia and my first card from Myanmar.

The card from Germany shows the equestrian statue of Frederick the Great in front of the Orangery Palace in Potsdam. The Orangery Palace was built in the style of the Italian Renaissance between 1851 and 1864 at the behest of Frederick William IV of Prussia. It was built to overwinter the pot plants from the park of Sanssouci. As one of the Palaces of Potsdam is the Orangery Palace since 1990 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
I got this card card some weeks ago in a cover.


Stamp:
EUROPA (issued 07-05-2015)
with a special postmark from the play market in Potsdam


Thank You very much Phoenix for sending me the card in an envelope!
