The German philosopher Dorothea Schlözer was born in Göttingen, but lived after her marriage in Lübeck, where she created the “enlightened salon”.
Dorothea von Rodde-Schlözer (18 August 1770 – 12 July 1825) was a German scholar and the first woman to receive a doctor of philosophy degree in Germany.
At the Lübecker Salon, guests such as leaders in society, art and politics would assemble in private rooms to debate about cultural issues of national importance.
In the Dorothea Schlözer Room, the walls are decorated with text and pictures that give interesting insights into the life of the “Salonniere”. It’s a quiet cosy little double room, overlooking the courtyard, with a large wardrobe, a comfortable seating area and a desk in the classic-romantic style. The box-spring bed and the location to the quiet courtyard invite you to relax.
The modern bathroom with shower and toilet contains generous storage areas and a large mirror.
