Highlights 2018

So it goes on after the Reformation year

2017 was the year of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and the culmination of the Luther Decade. In addition, there were numerous events, such as exhibitions or concerts, which dealt extensively with the subject of reformation and the trappings. Of course, Martin Luther's theses were only the impetus that triggered a century-long development. So there are many anniversaries to celebrate in the coming years. And where better than in Saxony-Anhalt, the country of origin of the Reformation?

The sites of the Reformation can be visited here in excellent condition, because before the Reformation anniversary was invested heavily. Thus, the World Heritage sites in the Luther sites Wittenberg and Eisleben have been extensively renovated and the infrastructure brought to fruition or expanded. The restored Wittenberg Castle Church and the Lutherstube in Augusteum stand out in particular. Anyone who would like to find out more about these construction projects will have the opportunity to do so in Wittenberg's Lutherhaus from April. There the Stiftung Luthergedenkstätten presents the exhibition "Building for Luther". Maybe the buildings from different eras have never been in such good condition.

There are also 2018 anniversaries to celebrate. While a Heidelberg Heidelberg Disputation celebrates 500 years in Heidelberg, the well-known inaugural speech of Philipp Melanchthon will be held in Wittenberg - also for the 500th time. The Humanist had been appointed to the Chair of Greek Language at Wittenberg University and used his inaugural address for a lecture on reforms at the university and the importance of ancient writers as sources of new life and thought. Of course, in 2018 "Luther's Wedding" will take place again as a big city festival in Wittenberg.

This was the year of Luther

REVIEW 2017

In 2017, the Reformation Day on October 31st was once a nationwide holiday. Many visitors from all over the world experienced impressive sights, found new religious impulses and discovered in exhibitions, concerts or congresses the effects of the reformatory upheaval.
