Weißenfels celebrates the 250th birthday of the writer Novalis

On 2 May 2022, the city of Weißenfels will celebrate the 250th birthday of the writer Novalis, born Georg Philipp Friedrich von Hardenberg (1772-1801). To mark the occasion, the museum is staging a presentation entitled "The Novalis Cabinet" at Neu-Augustusburg Castle from 2 May to 2 October 2022.
Novalis was not only a well-known writer of the early Romantic period, but also a trained geologist. At the end of 1797, he began to study mining sciences in Freiberg, Saxony. Together with his teacher, the geologist and mineralogist Abraham Gottlob Werner, he conducted a geological survey of Saxony in search of new minerals and fuels. During his explorations and developments of the region, he succeeded in mapping new lignite fields.
 
The presentation highlights Novalis in his professional capacity as a geologist. Geological objects from the museum's collection will be assembled. In addition, a brief look is taken at the use and extraction of coal at that time.
