Denkmal C. D. Friedrich, Lappstaße

Caspar David Friedrich Monument

The Caspar David Friedrich Monument was created by the Lübeck-based sculptor Claus Martin Görtz in 2009. Since 2010, the monument has been located in Lappstraße, near the fish market, and in the immediate vicinity of St. Nicholas’ Cathedral and the house in Lange Straße where Friedrich was born. The bronze sculpture is the result of a private initiative. It was financed by the Ministry of Culture in Schwerin and received numerous donations from citizens, companies and institutions of the region.
