What to expect

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.
