Germany: Schleswig-Holstein from Papersisters

On 27th July I got three postcards: one from Germany, one from South Africa and one from Thailand.

The card from Germany is Papersisters' German Landmark postcard of Schleswig-Holstein. Schleswig-Holstein is the northernmost of Germany's 16 Federal States. It borders on Denmark, the Baltic Sea, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Lower Saxony, Hamburg and the North Sea. The state is home to a Danish minority. Kiel is the state's capital and Lübeck its only other big city.

Among others the card shows the Holsten Gate in Lübeck and Glücksburg Castle.

With matching stamps:
University of Kiel (issued 02-03-2015)
Lighthouse Kiel-Holtenau (from set of two) (issued 08-06-2017)
with a special postmark from Amrum
