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.

In Saxony-Anhalt, you can discover Luther’s birthplace Eisleben, his home for many years – Lutherstadt Wittenberg – and the parental home in Mansfeld. 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! Come and join us on this Reformation tour to Wittenberg

There seems to be a UNESCO World Heritage site waiting around every corner in Lutherstadt Wittenberg! No fewer than four of the town’s buildings – including Luther House and the famous Castle Church – are on the UNESCO World Heritage list, and I couldn’t help but gaze in awe as I stood in front of the towering Castle Church. The church made a big impression on me – and it’s just one of many gems to be found in Lutherstadt Wittenberg. Luther lived in what is today known as Luther House from 1508 onwards. The building now houses a museum, where I gained a fascinating insight into the history of the Reformation. While strolling across the expansive Marktplatz square, I took the opportunity to take some snaps of larger-than-life sculptures of Luther und Melanchthon. Just a few minutes later I found myself surrounded by unspoilt countryside on the Elbe Cycle Path. Unfortunately, my short stay only gave me time for a brief glimpse of the wealth of historic sights the town has to offer.
