Euskirchen - GERMANY
This is the second official card I've got today (they're my favorite since I never know from where they will come from next, although Germany is always a good bet!) this time showing a multiview of the little town of Euskirchen in the Western Germany. Thank you very much Patrícia for this card and your nice words. This postcard took 7 days to arrive!
Euskirchen is a town in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, capital of the district Euskirchen. While Euskirchen resembles a modern shopping town, it also has a history dating back over 700 years, having been granted town status in 1302. Parts of the ancient town wall, and three of its defensive towers, are still standing. Tourists are also attracted by Euskirchen due to the proximity of two large cities, Cologne and Bonn, to the North-East, and the hills of the Eifel region to the South.
