Germany: Eichstätt

On Thursday I got two postcards from Germany.

One of them shows various views of Eichstätt. Eichstätt is a city in the Altmühl Valley in the German State of Bavaria. It is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Eichstätt. The Archaeopteryx was discovered near Eichstätt. The Willibaldsburg (upper right corner) was the representative castle of Eichstätt's prince-bishops. Today it houses the Jura Museum. 


Stamp:
Saxon Switzerland (issued 02-06-2016)


Thank You very much Phoenix!
