Münster - GERMANY
This official POSTCROSSING card came from Münster, a university city in northwest Germany - because it is a city with more than 1200 years of history, there are examples of all the major architectural styles and movements. In this card we can see the town houses in the Kreuzviertel district. Thank you very much Anke for this card. This postcard took 7 days to arrive!
