What to expect

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.
