Germany: Rhön Mountains

Yesterday I got two postcards: one from Germany and one from Japan.

The card from Germany shows various views of the Rhön Mountains. The Rhön Mountains are a group of low mountains in the German States of Bavaria, Hesse and Thuringia. They are a popular tourist destination and since 1991 a Biosphere Reserve of the UNESCO. The highest mountain in the group is the Wasserkuppe.
I got this card a few weeks ago in a cover.

With matching stamps:
Historic and Endangered Domestic Animal Breeds (from set of two) (issued 01-09-2016)
with a special postmark showing a Goldfinch, Germany's Bird of the Year 2016
Gliding Flight on the Wasserkuppe (issued 03-01-2011)
with a special postmark showing the Arche Rhön

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