The Reformation in the 16th century with leading figure Martin Luther (1483-1546) is probably one of the most important cultural events in Germany with a lasting worldwide influence. The publication of his theses in 1517 led to a hardly suspected upheaval in church and society. In 2017, 500 years later, this event was commemorated in Wittenberg and other places of activity of the former Augustinian monk.

In the year 2021 Worms will also dedicate itself to an anniversary: 500 years of the Diet of Worms. There, the reformer was ordered to revoke his theses and publications, but refused.

Join in the experience of yet another special anniversary in regards to Luther. Worms and other "Luther sites" are welcoming guests with many great events and exhibitions.

Martin Luther and the Reformation left a particularly lasting impression on the Central German cultural landscape. Especially in Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt, there are many Luther-related sites that are worth a visit even after the Decade of the Reformation jubilee.

There are intriguing locations to discover in Thuringia, e.g. the Wartburg in Eisenach, the place where he translated the Bible, or St Augustine’s monastery in Erfurt! In Saxony-Anhalt, you can discover Luther’s birthplace Eisleben, his home for many years – Lutherstadt Wittenberg – and the parental home in Mansfeld.

Rarely has a single human being caused such radical historical and far-reaching changes as Martin Luther did. Follow in the footsteps of the young Martin Luther and plan a Reformation tour to Erfurt & Eisenach!

Our main focus in 2017 was an event of global importance, and one intrinsically linked to Central Germany: Together with a large number of guests, we celebrated the world-renowned reformer Martin Luther and the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Having begun in 2008, the celebratory Luther Decade reached its climax in 2017. In order to assist operators of group tours, churches and associations with their preparations, we developped a 10-days itinerary including 11 towns connected to Luther.

This group tour suggestion is a great way to explore Luther's birthplace (Eisleben), the place where he translated the Bible (Wartburg Castle in Eisenach) and many more Luther-related places on your journey throughout Germany.

My tip in Wittenberg: Don’t miss a visit of the Asisi Panorama ‘Luther 1517’, dedicated to the events that took place in Wittenberg 500 years ago, when the monk and scholar Martin Luther published his 95 Theses on the reform of the Church.
