In 1737, the first German Freemason's lodge was founded in Hamburg. The Freemasonry is divided into various departments, but basically stands for humanity and tolerance, free from any denomination. The temple-like lodge building in Moorweise was erected in 1907-09 and bears some distinctive classical features. During the Nazi era, Freemasonry was forbidden and the building was used as a POW camp until being liberated by British troops in 1945.
