Free­mason tour

Freimaurer Museum

A guided tour dedicated to the visible and invisible traces left by famous freemasons.

Bayreuth was already in the 18th century a center of Free­ma­sonry with the, in the year 1741, from margrave Frie­de­rich founded palace lodge, one of the first masonic lodges. The co-founder of the lodge, the master builder Carl Philipp Chris­tian von Gontard, left as visible signs of his work, the two repre­sen­ta­tive palais above the palace terraces, which are known today as the Gontard houses.
Also nume­rous street names remind one of many other free­ma­sons: Feus­tel­straße, Ellrodtweg, Fich­tel­straße oder Gott­fried-Semper-Weg. Wolf­gang Amadeus Mozart also left traces of his own in Bayreuth, through his cousin Maria Anna Thekla Mozart, who became famous as “Bäsle” through their famous corre­spon­dence. Until her death in the year 1841, the “Bäsle” lived in the house of the former Postei in the
Friederichstraße.
The tour conti­nues through the new palace, where, with the palm room, one of the first masonic temples of the conti­nent has been preserved, the tour then conti­nues to the German free­mason museum, which can be visited after the tour is finished. In addi­tion to buil­dings, street names and persons, the two-hour tour also includes looking at the origins and goals of the often as secre­tive looked upon freemasonry.
