Germany: Mouse Tower

On Thursday I got two postcards: one from Germany and one from Japan.

The card from Germany shows the Mouse Tower and Ehrenfels Castle. The Mouse Tower is a stone tower on a small island in the Rhine located near Bingen am Rhein. According to the legend the tower got its name from a cruel archbishop who was killed in the tower by thousands of mice. As part of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley it is since 2002 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
