On Monday I got two postcards from Germany.
One of them is Papersisters' German Landmark postcard of North Rhine-Westphalia. North Rhine-Westphalia is one of the States of the Federal Republic of Germany bordering on Lower Saxony, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate, Belgium and the Netherlands. It is the most populated German State and 29 of Germany's 79 big cities are in this state. Düsseldorf is the state's capital, while Cologne is the largest city. Bonn was until 1999 the capital of West Germany.
Among others the card shows the Cologne Cathedral, the Emperor William Memorial in Porta Westfalica, the Aachen Cathedral and the Corvey Abbey.
With matching stamps:
Ruhr Area (issued 10-07-2003)
Cologne Cathedral (issued 06-03-2003)
with a special postmark about the 150th anniversary of the Bethel Institution in Bielefeld
