In Eisleben Luther's life began and came to an end. Here Martin Luther was born on 10 November 1483 as the first of nine children of his parents Hans and Margarete Luder. Here the world-famous reformer died in 1546, too.
Wittenberg was the place of work of Luther. No other city was as connected to the Reformation as the Lutherstadt. The Reformation began here. The ensemble of historically important reformation sights has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996.
