The 2nd favorite Ina sent me is this snowy view of Wartburg Castle. To send the card she even used a matching stamp with the castle.
The other card was sent by Sabine 9 years ago.

Large, imposing and steeped in history: high above the town of Eisenach sits Wartburg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1999. One of the best-preserved medieval German fortresses and almost 1,000 years old, it is possibly Germany's most famous castle, and certainly one of its most important.
With its impressive ceremonial hall, the surviving 12th century Palas – a perfect example of late-Romanesque architecture – still bears traces of the Wartburg's former glory. To enter this extensive site today is to experience an entire era of German history. Courtly art from the Middle Ages, St. Elisabeth's life and work, the German student fraternities' festival, the contest of the minnesingers and Wagner's romantic opera Tannhäuser – all these are an integral part of the Wartburg. As is Martin Luther, who in 1521-22, posing as 'Squire George', sought and found refuge here. He used his enforced confinement to steel himself for future theological conflicts and to write his German translation of the New Testament. - in: http://www.germany.travel/en/towns-cities-culture/unesco-world-heritage/wartburg-castle.html
