New German Unesco cards

My german unesco wishlist is getting shorter and shorter. Today i've recived these 3 wonderful cards sent by Sabine "bine", all of them new in my collection.
With the 4 cards i got today, i've now more than 2000 cards, 2002 to be precise :D
"Speyer Cathedral, a basilica with four towers and two domes, was founded by Conrad II in 1030 and remodelled at the end of the 11th century. It is one of the most important Romanesque monuments from the time of the Holy Roman Empire. The cathedral was the burial place of the German emperors for almost 300 years." - in: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/168

"Wittenberg, officially Lutherstadt Wittenberg, is a town in Germany in the Bundesland Saxony-Anhalt, on the Elbe River.
The importance of Wittenberg historically was due to its seat of the Elector of Saxony, a dignity held by the dukes of Saxe-Wittenberg and also to its close connection with Martin Luther and the dawn of the Protestant Reformation; several of its buildings are associated with the events of this time. Part of the Augustinian monastery in which Luther dwelt, first as a monk and later as owner with his wife and family, is preserved and considered to be the world's premier museum dedicated to Luther." - in:

"Bauhaus ("House of Building" or "Building School") is the common term for the Staatliches Bauhaus a school in Germany that combined crafts and the fine arts, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. It operated from 1919 to 1933.
The Bauhaus school was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar. In spite of its name, and the fact that its founder was an architect, the Bauhaus did not have an architecture department during the first years of its existence. The Bauhaus style became one of the most influential currents in Modernist architecture and modern design. The Bauhaus had a profound influence upon subsequent developments in art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design, and typography.
The school existed in three German cities (Weimar from 1919 to 1925, Dessau from 1925 to 1932 and Berlin from 1932 to 1933)." - in:

Hello Martinha,

I'm Edit from Spain. I have just started Postcrossing. I found your blog and I was wondering if you would be interested in a card exchange. I could send you one or more about Avila (Spain), if you are interested. I would be happy to receive anything about Portugal :)

Have a nice day,
Edit
