Mülheim an der Ruhr - GERMANY
This card comes from the city of Mülheim an der Ruhr in western Germany (not far from the border with the Netherlands), another place totally new to me. Thank you very much Sue, your hometown seems a very interesting place, but tel me... why all the bubbles in the card? This postcard took 6 days to arrive!
Mülheim an der Ruhr, also called "City on the River", is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. It is located in the Ruhr Area between Duisburg, Essen, Oberhausen and Ratingen. Mülheim received its town charter in 1808; at the time of the city's 200th anniversary with approximately 170,000 residents, it was counted among the smaller cities of Germany. It is home to many companies, especially in the food industry.
