My Trip to Osnabrück

On Thursday I was in Osnabrück and there I bought some cards for my collection.

Osnabrück is the fourth largest city of Lower Saxony and was founded at the centre of important European trading routes.

The Felix Nussbaum Haus is a museum about the artist Felix Nussbaum, who was born in Osnabrück in 1904 and who was killed in Auschwitz in 1944, and houses the largest collection of his paintings. The museum building was designed by Daniel Libeskind. It forms a museum complex together with the Cultural History Museum.

The Town Hall of Osnabrück was built between 1487 and 1512 in the late Gothic style. In 1648 the Peace of Westphalia, which ended the Thirty Years' War, was negotiated and signed in the Town Halls of Osnabrück and Münster. Due to this event Osnabrück and Münster got the European Heritage Label in 2014.
