Hagen, Westphalia - GERMANY
Today I've got four cards from Germany, all sent by the same postcrosser in a multiple UNESCO swap, well to be exact we only exchanged three WHS cards but he threw in this one from Hagen (near the place he lives), the gate to the famous ruralm, hilly and touristic área in Westphalia. Thank you very much Marcel for the amazing swap and for this nice surprise of a extra postcard. This postcards took 3 days to arrive!
Hagen is the 39th-largest city in Germany, located in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is located on the eastern edge of the Ruhr area, 15 km south of Dortmund, where the rivers Lenne, Volme and Ennepe meet the river Ruhr. Owing to the extensive use of water power along the rivers, metal processing played an important role in the region of Hagen.
