Germany: Moritzburg Castle

On Tuesday I got nine postcards from Germany.

One of them shows the Moritzburg Castle. The Moritzburg Castle is a Baroque castle in the German State of Saxony. It was built between 1723 and 1736 by Augustus II the Strong on the same place where already Duke Moritz of Saxony built a hunting lodge in the 16th century. It houses a museum of hunting trophies and 18th century objects. 
I got this card a few weeks ago in a cover.


Stamp:
Moritzburg Lighthouse (from set of two) (issued 11-06-2015)
with a special postmark showing the Moritzburg Castle and Lighthouse


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