Worth seeing

1931 opened the Lessing Museum. It is dedicated today to the unusual life, work and influence of the poet of the Enlightenment.


A trip back into the times of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing begins at his birthplace in the Lessinggässchen (Lessing alley). His house of birth unfortunately had been destroyed by fire but the citizens of Kamenz erected a representative building in another location in which they set up the Lessing Museum in 1931. It is dedicated to the unusual life, work and influence of the poet of the Enlightenment.
