Novalis went down in literary history as an important German poet and early Romantic.

Friedrich von Hardenberg, called Novalis, lived in the house at Klosterstraße 24 with his family from the age of 13 until his early death at 28. He went down in literary history as the most important German poet of the early Romantic period. After successfully passing his law exams, he began further studies at the Bergakademie Freiberg to acquire specialist knowledge for his work as a salt mine assessor. Throughout his studies, he was constantly literarily productive, with the early and painful death of his 15-year-old fiancée having a strong influence on him and his literary work. Among the most important works of Novalis are the "Hymns to the Night" as well as the fragment "Heinrich von Ofterdingen", which is widely known for its symbolic figure of the "Blue Flower". In the exhibition in Novalis' former residence and death house, the person of Friedrich von Hardenberg is presented in its entirety, so that not only the literary work of the young artist is addressed, but also his research and findings in the field of geology/mining.
Apart from the baroque residential building, the so-called "Novalis Pavilion", which is located in the adjacent garden, has also been preserved. The historical pavilion is used for readings and lectures, is open to visitors who are interested and can also be booked for civil weddings. Not far from this memorial is the current city park, where the poet has found his final resting place. The idyllic "poet's corner" with a memorial stone and Novalis bust remind us of him and his legacy.
