In the middle
The Luther Way connects Luther’s cities Wittenberg and Eisleben. The trail stretches over 460 kilometers and takes hikers and pilgrims to over 20 sites in connection to Martin Luther and the reformation. Small village churches invite the guests to pause for a moment and enjoy the silence. The Luther Way runs through a region which is just as attractive scenically as it is culturally. It leads along the Romanesque Road, giving travellers a taste of all the romantic parks and gardens, rivers, and lakes which Saxony-Anhalt has to offer. The routes incorporates not only the ‘Luther cities’ Wittenberg, Eisleben and Mansfeld but towns like Bernburg, Wetting and Wörlitz as well. Giant ‘L’ signs lead the way in honour of the man after whom the path is named. The Luther Way also offers travellers convenient connections to other famous German and European hiking trails, the Way of St. James being a prime example.
