Germany: Paderborn

Today I received two cards. One from Germany and one from The Netherlands.

Paderborn is a city in eastern North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The name of the city derives from the river Pader and 'born', an old German term for the source of a river. The river Pader originates in more than 200 springs near Paderborn Cathedral, where St. Liborius is buried. To honor St. Liborius, there is a famous festival every last week in July called "Libori". There are 145,000 inhabitants (as recorded in December 2009) living within the city, many of which moved to Paderborn during the last thirty years.
