Much of Wittenberg's history is connected with Martin Luther and Lucas Cranach the Elder, and there are so many buildings that originate from the time of these two great men. "Luther's House" gives an insight into the world of the reformers, while the Cranach courtyards chronicle the life of the great artist. You can also relive life in the former East Germany at Wittenberg's House of History.
Luther's House
The house where Martin Luther lived from 1508, portrays in authentic detail how the preacher lived his everyday life. It even offers a tour for visitors with little time on their hands, giving them a concise overview of Martin Luther's lifetime. The highlights of the exhibition are the pulpit from the town church and a monk's habit that Luther is said to have worn at the Imperial Diet in Worms. The Luther room, most of which is still preserved in its original condition, forms the focal point of the house.
Melanchthon House
This Renaissance building and former residence of the German theologian and reformer Philipp Melanchthon is regarded as one of the finest town houses in Wittenberg. It now houses a museum, which features among other things his study and the room in which he died, both with original furnishings, as well as a number of Melanchthon's pictures, prints and manuscripts.
House of History in Wittenberg
Discover how people lived in the former East Germany. The "gute Stube" exhibition features detailed reconstructions of living rooms from every decade of the GDR from the 1940s to the 1980s. A combination of original text and pictures and a unique collection of authentic artefacts chronicle the everyday life of a typical East German family. A visit to this exhibition is not to be missed as it is the only one of its kind in Germany.
