What to expect

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!

My tip in Eisenach: What about a visit to the Bach House in Eisenach? As Reformation and music are closely linked, we recommend you to get to know the world of this musician.
