Lernt Deutschland kennen! (P233 34-49-1-)

The “Lernt Deutschland kennen!” (Get to Know Germany!) cards were issued over a span of 30+ years. Each card featured a scenic German picture on the left side. Any German town could order the cards and choose the view, provided they ordered at least 50,000 cards. For this reason, hundreds of different varieties exist.

The P233 “Lernt Deutschland kennen!” series saw the first use of printing codes on the lower right of the cards. The printing codes (ex. 34-49-1-B7) consisted of the year (34), series (49), cylinder or plate number (1), and the view identifier (B7).

The cards of series 34-49-1- depict:

  • B1 — Ratidor
  • B2 — Wuppertal Monorail
  • B3 — Neuzauche
  • B4 — Stiftskirche, Gernrode
  • B5 — Misdroy
  • B6 — Bad Aibling Hotel
  • B7 — Straupitz
  • B8 — Duisburg-Hamborn
  • B9 — Bad Homburg
