The last time i've received a german card was exactly 2 months ago. Thats somehow unusual because german cards used to arrive almost every week. 
Finally, last thursday arrived this beautiful card with St. Emmeram Palace in Regensburg.

St. Emmeram Palace is the royal residence for the Thurn and Taxis dynast, which lived here for almost two hundred years after they moved from Frankfurt to Regensburg in 1748. In 1816, the palace was converted into a magnificent residence that is regarded as one of the most important examples of historicism in Germany.
As compensation for losing the Bavarian mail monopoly, the princes were given the former Abbey of St. Emmeram in 1812. From 1816, this was converted into a magnificent residence that is now considered one of Germany's finest example of historicist architecture – a revival of styles from the past. - in:
