Another sweet postcard from the lovely Petra, Germany. We already swapped before and finding this postcard in my mailbox was a really nice surprise.
Gengenbach is a town in the district of Ortenau, Baden-Württemberg, Germany and a popular tourist destination on the western edge of the Black Forest with about 11,000 inhabitants.
This postcard is showing the town’s city hall, which is decorated as an advent calendar during holidays. As the building has exactly 24 windows on its front side, each window is decorated, and every day from Dec. 1 until Dec. 25 one window is opened. Just like you do it on those children’s advent calendars that hide a little chocolate behind each date… except this is a building and there is no hidden chocolate. :)
It’s a really cool thing, I must say!
