Wittenberg

One Hammer, Four Nails and The 95 Theses: that’s how it all began. Long before the reformation, on November 10th, 1483, Martin Luther came into the world. On our way to Wittenberg, we will make a short visit to his birth town of Eisleben, Germany. Upon arriving in the Lutherstadt Wittenberg we will be greeted by the imposing Castle Church where Luther proclaimed his grievances with the Catholic church by posting the 95 Theses. A short stroll through this historic town takes us to the Luther Museum; renovated and reopened in 2017 to celebrate this historic event.  Here guests can visit the special exhibit Luther! 95 Treasures – 95 People. On display for a short time only, this is one of just three National Special Exhibitions (the others are at the Wartburg Castle and in Berlin) commissioned for the 500th Anniversary.  Following the museum visit, we will enjoy a hearty German meal at the local town brewery before a short walking tour through town.
