Germany: Halberstadt Cathedral

On Saturday I got two postcards: one from Germany and one from Italy.

The card from Germany shows the Halberstadt Cathedral in the German State of Saxony-Anhalt. The Halberstadt Cathedral is one of only a few big churches in Germany inspired by the French Gothic cathedrals. It was built between 1236 and 1491 and is known for its large treasure. During World War II it was badly damaged, but later it was restored.
