Erfurt, Germany


Erfurt is a city in central Germany in the state of Thuringia. It is most famous for the buildings shown on this card, Mariendom and the Severikirche. Martin Luther was ordained in Mariendom in 1507, ten years before posting his ninety-five theses. Mariendom also boasts a free-swinging bell (the largest of its kind when it was built in 1497), and the burial site of a bigamous 15th-century count and his two wives.

The stamp is Altstadt Regensburg, same as here.
