Lessing Monument

Lessing-Denkmal (Braunschweig Stadtmarketing GmbH/G. Grote)

On rediscovering the grave of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing in the Magni cemetery, a bronze-cast memorial statue was erected (completed 1849 according to a design by Ernst Rietschel). The 2.6-metre-high statue was the first statue in Braunschweig which realistically depicted a human being. The plinth is made of Harz granite.
