cover from Germany

On Tuesday I got not only two postcards but also a cover from Germany.

200 years Die Weser (issued 08-12-2016)

Inside were two postcards.

The first one shows the Lutherhaus in Eisenach. The Lutherhaus is one of the oldest surviving half-timbered houses in Thuringia. It is said that Martin Luther lived in the house when he went to school in Eisenach between 1498 and 1501. The house now is home to a museum about Martin Luther and the Bible.

The second one shows various places in Eisenach which have a connection with Johann Sebastian Bach. Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach in 1685. He was baptised in the Saint George's Church, where Martin Luther already had given sermons, and later went to the same Latin School as Luther. In 1695 he moved to Ohrdruf. In 1907 the World's first Bach Museum was founded in Eisenach (lower row middle picture).

Thank You very much Sandy!
