Postcard from Germany no. 2
A postcard showing one of German UNESCO World Heritage sites, Monastic Island of Reichenau, on Lake Constance, in the state of Baden-Württemberg. There are traces of a Benedictine monastery, founded in 724, plus churches of St Mary and Marcus, St Peter and St Paul, and St George from the 9th - 11th centuries. The self-adhesive stamp from 2008 is dedicated to the island as well, showing its panorama and details from its rich historic heritage. The rest of the postage is covered by 20 eurocent flower definitive, marigold. The card was postmarked in Briefzemtrum 59 - Hamm. Thank you, Maren!
