Germany: Merseburg

Four of the nine cards that arrived during my absence are from Germany.

One of them shows the Merseburg Cathedral. Merseburg is a city in the German State of Saxony-Anhalt. It is one of the oldest cities in Central Germany. The Merseburg Cathedral was the seat of the Diocese of Merseburg until the Reformation. Its construction started in 1015 and today it is part of the Romanesque Road.
I got this card a few weeks ago in a cover.


Stamp:
Lily of the Valley (issued 06-05-2010)
with a special postmark about the 1000th anniversary of the Merseburg Cathedral


In the cover was also a postcard of the Cathedral-and-Palace Ensemble in Merseburg.


Thank You very much Sandra for sending me the cards in an envelope!
