This is a card from Hamburg City Sporthafen. This port offers guests who visit the Hanseatic City by theirs sail or motor yachts, an attractive port of call and berth in the heart of the city.
He is one of the attractions during the "harbor-birthday" because of national and international topflagged boots. The swimming boat-show of the "hanseboot harbor" that takes place every year together with the international hanseboot boat show makes the City Sporthafen to the centre of attraction for all water sports fans. Also the restaurant on the lightvessel is for many guests another reason to visit City Sporthafen. - in:

I'm not sure but i believe this is the one of the two lighthouses in the peninsula of Sylt Island called “Ellenbogen”. This one is Germany’s northernmost lighthouse.

The Victory Column is a monument in Berlin, Germany. Designed by Heinrich Strack after 1864 to commemorate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War, by the time it was inaugurated on 2 September 1873, Prussia had also defeated Austria in the Austro-Prussian War (1866) and France in the Franco-Prussian War (1870–71), giving the statue a new purpose. Different from the original plans, these later victories in the so-called unification wars inspired the addition of the bronze sculpture of Victoria, 8.3 metres high and weighing 35 tonnes, designed by Friedrich Drake. Berliners, with their fondness for giving nicknames to buildings, call the statue Goldelse, meaning something like "Golden Lizzy".
The Victory Column is a major tourist attraction to the city of Berlin. - in: wikipedia

Bonn is a city on the banks of the Rhine River in the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It was the provisional capital of West Germany from 1949 to 1990 and the official seat of government of united Germany from 1990 to 1999.
The Bonn Minster is one of Germany's oldest churches, having been built between the 11th and 13th centuries. At one point the church served as the cathedral for the Archbishopric of Cologne. However, the Minster is now a Papal basilica. - in: wikipedia
