In the midst
The Luther Trail connects Lutherstadt Wittenberg and Lutherstadt Eisleben. The trail leads pilgrims and hikers along 460 kilometres to the sites where Martin Luther lived and worked and to more than 20 places which are linked to the Reformation. Small village churches or parish churches along the Luther Trail offer visitors tranquillity and a place for reflection and contemplation. The Luther Trail runs through a region which is just as attractive scenically as it is culturally. It leads along the Romanesque Road, past Saxony-Anhalt’s romantic parks and gardens, rivers, and lakes.
The route incorporates not only the Lutherstädten Wittenberg, Eisleben and Mansfeld but also towns like Bernburg, Wetting and Wörlitz. Giant ‘L’ signs lead the way in honour of the man the path is named after. The Luther Trail also offers travellers convenient connections to other famous German and European hiking trails, the Way of St. James being a prime example.
The website www.pilgern-im-lutherland.de provides an overview of current offers for spiritual travel in Saxony-Anhalt. The focus is on the pilgrimages and in particular on the Luther Trail in Saxony-Anhalt. Travelling to sites linked to Luther and the Reformation fascinates tourists from all over the world. The website offers the growing number of pilgrims and spiritual tourists in Central Germany detailed descriptions of important routes and paths, as well as current event tips but also prayers, songs and biblical and meditative texts.
For the first time, various pilgrimage routes - from the new Luther Trail to the ecumenical pilgrimage route in Central Germany - will be presented together and presented in a clear and informative manner together with proven routes such as the "Romanesque Road" or prominent spiritual sites. Maps, background information and practical travel tips complete the offer of the "virtual pilgrim's office". If there are any questions left, you can also contact the office of the tourist association which provides expert assistance.
