Martin Luther is one of the most important German theologians and famous worldwide. With his posting of the theses on October 31, 1517, Luther laid the foundation for the Protestant Church. Luther’s protest against the sale of indulgences was more than just a rebellion against the ruling Catholic Church. With the reflection on what man is and what God gives him, modesty and self-responsible action became the authoritative pillars of faith. The town and castle churches, as well as the Luther House and the Melanchthon House, have been UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1996.

Lutherstadt Wittenberg is considered THE world-renowned Luther city. Here, guests are welcome to walk in the footsteps of Luther and his companions in the castle and town church, the Luther House and the Melanchthon House.
