Entry to Johannisloge Zu den drei Rosen Hamburg

Also called “Rosenloge”

The Masonic Lodge “Zu den drei Rosen” Hamburg is one of the oldest lodges in Germany and was founded in January 1770. Famous men were among our members, such as Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Matthias Claudius, Konrad Ekhof, Julius Campe and others.

But important are not the famous names in our ranks. Since founding the Lodge hundreds of honorable men have spread the ideals and contents of our venerable fraternity trough the future and has been so far our incentive to continue our work in confraternity

Since many new members joined the “Rosenloge” our average age is quite low. Our Lodge is one of the largest Johannis Lodges in Hamburg.

Our members belong to many professional groups and various walk of life, but inside our Logde these features are of no significance.

For traditional reasons only men will be accepted in a lodge.

Our reputation is our obligation – and even after more than 241 years we are sure that the Johannis Loge “Zu den drei Rosen” Hamburg will have a bright future outlook.

As each new member of our Masonic Lodge could be valuable addition for us we are looking forward to welcome you. Please refer to our contact address: Contact.
