Germany: Altes Land

On Tuesday I got three postcards: two from Germany and one from Hong Kong.

One of the cards from Germany shows various views of the Altes Land. The Altes Land is an area of reclaimed marshland on the river Elbe in the German States of Hamburg and Lower Saxony. It is the biggest contiguous fruit-producing region in Central Europe and has a culture dominated by farming. Especially known it is for the cultivation of apples and cherries. Jork is the centre of the area and in 1990 the Museum Altes Land (lower row second from left) opened there.
