Heinrich der Löwe, the Founder of the Town
Two rather new monuments recall Duke Heinrich der Löwe (Henry the Lion) of Saxony, the founder of the town. Both were erected in 1995to honour the 800th anniversary of his death.
Next to the steeple of the Dom a copy of the medieval lion monument in Heinrich’s residence Braunschweig has been put up.
The monument by Peter Lenk in market square also presents a statue of a lion on top of a high pedestal. The relief on its four sides show Heinrich’s deeds. However, they do paint neither a friendly nor a heroic image. Heinrich is depicted slaying the men in battle and riding along a row of women lining up to be copulated.
