Germany: 1000 years Leipzig

Today I got eight postcards: seven from Germany and one from Iceland.

One of the cards from Germany was printed for Leipzig's 1000th anniversary. Leipzig was first mentioned in 1015 in the chronicle of Bishop Thietmar of Merseburg. Many events are planned in the anniversary year.
I got this card a few weeks ago in a cover.

With a matching stamp:
1000 years Leipzig (issued 01-07-2015)
with a special postmark showing Leipzig's Old Town Hall

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