Hello everyone! I’m VEEEERY slowly getting back into posting on this page. It’s gonna be a gradual transition and I can’t promise that many posts each week, at least to start with. But I also don’t want too much dust to accumulate here! So let’s kick this off with a postcard from Germany! This Official Postcrossing card features a landmark in the town of Wittenberg, or Lutherstadt Wittenberg, as it bears a great connection to Protestant Reformation figure Martin Luther. Wittenberg is located in the state of Saxony-Anhalt, somewhat in the eastern part of the country. If you were to visit this town, you would mostly likely come in contact with at least one landmark associated with Martin Luther. Such examples include the Castle Church, whose door is where Martin Luther allegedly nailed his 95 Theses to (in short, the 95 Theses argued for salvation through faith, not through deeds as the Church at the time was advocating for). But if you were gonna encounter something a bit more modern, perhaps, you might reach this building! Can you guess what kind of facility it is? This is actually a school! Probably one of the most unusual (but cool) looking schools I’ve ever seen. This is the Martin-Luther-Gymnasium, the building used for Hundertwasser School, which was renovated at the end of the 20th century to get its current look, as per the architectural concept of Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Hundertwasser’s style, to summarize, included the application of bright colors, use of irregular shapes and avoidance of straight lines. You’ll see similar styles with the Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, Austria, and the Waldspirale in Darmstadt, Germany. While this is indeed an active school, there are guided tours being done too. Gosh, imagine going to school at an art gallery 😛 (Also, imagine going to school…) Thank you so much for this awesome postcard!
