Integrity: Rather than working on real buildings like the masons of old, today’s Freemasons focus on building themselves as people of integrity, and our membership helps provides the structure to achieve that goal.
Respect: With a Grand Lodge membership of more than 2,000 people drawn from communities across Germany, Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race, religion or any other perceived differences that can divide us as a society.
Friendship: One of the oldest social organizations in the world, Freemasonry is not defined by an ideology. It is open to people from all religions and political persuasions and provides the common foundation for friendships between members, many of which will last for life.
Charity: Kindness and charitable giving are deeply ingrained within the principles of Freemasonry. The organization provides a support structure that helps members make positive contributions to communities and worthwhile causes through fundraising events or volunteer work.
