Germany: Castle of Falkenlust

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

The card from Germany shows the Castle of Falkenlust in Brühl. The Castle of Falkenlust was built between 1729 and 1740 at the behest of Clemens August of Bavaria, the Archbishop-Elector of Cologne. It belongs to the most important baroque and rococo buildings in Germany. Since 1984 it is together with the Castle of Augustusburg on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
I had this card laying around unwritten for a long time and now had the perfect chance to send it to myself.

With a matching stamp:
Castle of Falkenlust (issued 02-01-2018)
with a matching special postmark
