On the same day we had the meeting in Sintra, a few german postcrossers were also having a meeting in Ulm, a city in the federal German state of Baden-Württemberg, situated on the River Danube.

This is an official and a meeting card!

DE-998841, sent by "kaffeetante".

The card was sent by "kaffeetante" and signed, if i understood correctly the signatures, by "christine", "difemo", "venia" "nitrin" and "angeleye".
The card shows the Wiblingen Abbey, a former benedictine abbey in the suburb of Wiblingen in the south of Ulm. The church shows characteristics of late baroque and early classicism. Its library is a masterpiece of rococo.
This former benedictine abbey was founded in 1093 was later used as barracks. Today its buildings house several departments of the medical faculty of the University of Ulm, a museum and the south wing of the abbey, having been rebuilt in 1917, is part of the local network of municipal retirement homes.
