Germany: Walhalla memorial

On Tuesday arrived ten postcards, three of them are from Germany.

One of the German cards shows the Walhalla memorial in Donaustauf. The Walhalla memorial was built between 1830 and 1842 at the behest of King Ludwig I of Bavaria to commemorate important persons of the German history. At the beginning 160 persons were honoured with busts and plaques, today 195 are honoured.
I sent this card after I visited the Walhalla memorial on my way to Milan.


Stamp:
200th birthday of Otto von Bismarck (issued 02-04-2015)
The bust of Otto von Bismarck was placed in the Walhalla memorial in 1908.
