On a public tour through the historic old town of Lutherstadt you can discover the main attractions of the city by foot or tram. Places to see are the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Luther's House, Melanchthonhaus, castle church and church St. Marien.

3 days in the footsteps of Martin Luther

Martin Luther - this name is inseparable from Saxony-Anhalt. Saxony-Anhalt was Luther's home and is the country of origin of the Reformation. Here Martin Luther was born, here he lived, here died the great reformer. The ideas of the Reformation have changed Europe and found followers all over the world. Luther's life and work can still be explored today in the original scenes of the Reformation. Whether in Lutherstadt Eisleben, Halle (Saale), Mansfeld-Lutherstadt or Lutherstadt Wittenberg - Luther can be experienced in Saxony-Anhalt. Get to know the most important stations of Martin Luther in his home region on this tour.

DAY 1

You travel to Luther’s Wittenberg and embark on a leisurely walk through the city center with the noble wives of Lucas Cranach and Martin Luther. Barbara Cranach and Katharina von Bora know something amusing and interesting to report. The city tour leads over the market to the castle church, where Luther ushered in the Reformation in 1517 with the theses. The original sites of the Reformation in Wittenberg include the Melanchthonhaus and the Cranach-Höfe.

The Panorama LUTHER 1517 is dedicated to the events in Wittenberg 500 years ago, when the monk and scholar Martin Luther published his 95 theses on the reform of the (Catholic) church, setting in motion a dramatic movement that upheld the history and religions of the world Sustainable today. For the presentation of the 360 degree panorama, a rotunda was built in the old town of Wittenberg, which houses the approximately 15x75 meter large factory. Unique to the panoramic project LUTHER 1517 is the combination of a panoramic artwork by Yadegar Asisi with the world event commemorating the Reformation by the Evangelical Church of Germany and the city of Lutherstadt Wittenberg. The impressive panorama can be seen in the exhibition rotunda "w360" in Lutherstadt Wittenberg.

In the afternoon, the nearby Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz offers a visit to this short trip. Enjoy a tour through the beautiful historic park landscape or discover the garden kingdom with a gondola ride over the Wörlitzer See with coffee and cake!

DAY 2

In Halle (Saale) Luther's body was laid out for one night during the transfer of Wittenberg. The death mask and an imprint of his hands can be seen today in the crypt of the Marktkirche "Unser Lieben Frauen". The Handel Town offers cultural delights at the highest level: You can also visit the Händelhaus, Burg Giebichenstein or the Landesmuseum für Vorgeschichte, which exhibits the famous "Himmelsscheibe von Nebra". The school town of "Franckesche Stiftungen" with the palace-like orphanage is also worth a visit.

DAY 3

On the third day of the cultural trip, you will travel to Eisleben, where Luther was born and died. In Luther’s Eisleben, Luther's birthplace and the death house of the Reformer invite to a visit. Both houses are UNESCO World Heritage. The interesting interactive exhibitions illuminate the beginning and the end of Martin Luther's life. In the afternoon the trail leads us on Luther's tracks to Mansfeld, where Luther spent his childhood.
