It took me awhile to discover the names of these lighthouses. There's no information about them on the card and the sender didn't give a clue. But thanks to google i managed to identify all of them.

The mighty Schloss Burg in Solingen is one of the largest restored castles in western Germany. This imposing castle reigns 110 metres high over the Wupper, and was the centre of power for the Counts of Berg for more than 300 years. It was this ruling dynasty which gave Bergisches Land its name.
Burg castle is also home to the ‘Bergische Museum Schloss Burg’ (‘Burg Castle Bergisch Museum’) which offers an insight into the history and culture of the Middle Ages, life in the castle and everyday Bergisches Land culture. Medieval games tournaments are regularly held in the shadow of the keep, filling the castle courtyard with the sounds of knights in battle. - in:
