An hour away from Berlin lies the scenic town of Lutherstadt Wittenberg, from which the Reformation radiated throughout Northern Europe. Let’s wander cobbled streets and see where Luther lived, preached, and outlined his 95 Theses.
For this tour, we can either meet in Wittenberg, or we can travel together by train from Berlin.
In the charming city of Wittenberg, let’s discover:
the home of Martin Luther and his wife Katharina von Bora
the site of Luther’s burning of the Papal Bull announcing his excommunication
Wittenberg’s Schlosskirche, where Luther (or so legend has it) nailed his 95 Theses to the door
the home of Luther’s friend and fellow scholar Thomas Melanchthon
the home and studio of Lucas Cranach, whose portrait of Luther became so iconic
Wittenberg’s medieval town centre
