This was the Year of Luther

In 2017, Reformation Day on 31 October was celebrated for the first and only time in Germany as a national public holiday. Many visitors from all over the world experienced impressive sights, found new religious impulses and discovered the effects of the upheaval caused by the Reformation with a series of exhibitions, concerts and congresses. The anniversary of the Reformation caused a run on Luther’s places. In Wittenberg, Eisleben and Mansfeld visitor numbers to some museums more than doubled in 2017 in comparison to the preceding year. Interest from abroad was particularly great. Visitors came for example from the USA, Scandinavia and South Korea.
