Today, visitors to Wittenberg can enjoy the atmosphere of both the Reformation and the Renaissance. The town of Martin Luther has several UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the castle and municipal churches, along with the Luther hall.

Strolling through the old town, see the castle church, with its world famous door where Luther nailed his 95 Theses. Luther's grave is also found in Wittenberg.

First documented in 1183 and once the princely residence of Frederick the Wise, the rapidly developing university and the influence of Luther, Melanchthon and other leading reformers, all led to this small town on the Elbe becoming the centre of spiritual life in Europe.

Luther Path

Following in the reformer's footsteps - the Luther Path is now open!

People can now follow in the footsteps of the reformer Martin Luther in Saxony-Anhalt. The Luther Path is a contribution towards the "Luther 2017 - 500 Years of the Reformation" jubilee.
The path covers 255 miles between the Luther cities of Wittenberg and Eisleben.
It is marked by the signature letter "L" that Martin Luther used. Besides the tourism offerings, the Luther Path also has the potential for increasing religious and spiritual awareness. In the churches and other spots along the way the impact of Luther can be seen, and there are various spiritual sights and events to experience as well.
