Lutherstadt Wittenberg bears a name reflecting its historical significance. The city is closely connected to Martin Luther and the dawn of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. Back then, Wittenberg was considered one of the most important political and cultural centers in Germany.
A walk through the picturesque old city brings Wittenberg’s history to life. The Schlosskirche recalls the commencement of the Reformation. Here, on the doors of this famous church, is where Luther is said to have nailed his 95 theses in 1517. In the very center of the old city, the market square is home to gorgeous town houses. Also worth a visit are the numerous paintings by Lucas Cranach inside the St Marien Church. Along with the two churches, the Luther house and the Melanchthon house are also on the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
Excursion tickets can be purchased during the registration process. You may also purchase them later on, provided that there are still places available.
