This great map card is called "Germany the beautiful".
I agree that Germany is a very beautiful country and has some really gorgeous country sites, as you can even see on this card in the different regions.

This card here shows some of the beautiful castles of Bavaria, that were built by King Ludwig II. Of course on the top left you can see the castle of Newschwanstein with it's magnificent views. Construction began in 1869 to 1892 and it's one of the world's most known castles in Germany. On the top right, the beautiful Linderhof castle . It's architecture is a mixture of Renaissance and Baroque. The bottom left shows the castle of Herrenchiemsee, which lies on an island in Lake Chiemsee in southeastern Bavaria. It was built between 1878 and 1886 and was modeled after the Louis XIV palace in Versailles. The castle has a huge park with statutes, channels and fountains surrounding it. On the bottom right is King Ludwig II of Bavaria, also known as "The Swan King".
