Braunschweig Lion

Henry the Lion erected the bronze-cast lion statue in around 1166. It was originally plated with gold. The lion was a depiction of Henry’s power and jurisdiction. This highly regarded Romanesque sculpture became a symbol of Braunschweig. The original can be admired in Dankwarderode Castle.
