During a family holiday in Wittenberg, even the little ones can discover a lot. The Lutherstadt Wittenberg offers countless great experiences, and not just for those interested in culture and history, because the access to Luther's world is prepared in a playful way. Children, adolescents and adults can go on an expedition together.
On a public tour through the historic old town of Lutherstadt you discover on foot or conveniently by old town train the main attractions of the city, u.a. the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Lutherhaus, Melanchthonhaus and Schloss- und Stadtkirche.
What role did the city of Dessau play, what connections existed between the reigning Prince Georg III. and Luther, who also preached in Dessau and how, more than 400 years later, she became the capital of classical modernism? The answers to these questions can be found on a city tour and during a Bauhaus tour.
Between the Luther cities Wittenberg and Eisleben the Luther Trail runs. The route takes pilgrims and hikers along 460 kilometers to Martin Luther's places of work and to more than 20 sites related to the Reformation. The small village churches or city churches along the Luther Trail give visitors in contemplative silence room to think and pause.
At the time of Martin Luther, Philipp Melanchthon, the two Cranachs, Katharina von Boras and Justus Jonas, Lutherstadt will be brought to life and history in a 360 ° panorama.
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.
