The Memorial Plaque of J.W. Goethe at Komorní hůrka Hill monuments and memorials

Description

The memorial plaque of J. W. Goethe at Komorní hůrka Hill commemorates Goethe as a geologist and natural scientist and celebrates his scientific contribution to the exploration of the geological origins of the hill.

In 1932, a bas relief with Goethe’s profile was sculpted directly into the rocks not far from Sternberg’s adit. The author of it was Adolf Mayerl. The inscription above the entrance to the exploratory mining adit is “Den Naturfreunden gewidmet von G.K. Sternberg 1837”.
