Reformation Cards from Marburg, Wittenberg and Eislaben

On Tuesday I finally got my postcards with Reformation postmarks back.

Two of them show Marburg Castle. Marburg Castle was built in the 11th century. It was the residence of Landgraviate of Hesse and is especially known for the Marburg Colloquy held there in 1529.
