Martin Luther referred to Eisenach as "my dear town." He attended St. George's school here, a hardworking, talented and modest boy, popular with both teachers and students. It was here, at one of Germany's most revered castles, the Wartburg, that he translated the New Testament into German. Luther also preached at St George's Church here in 1521.

The Luther memorials have been lovingly preserved: Luther's house, one of the oldest half-timbered houses in Eisenach, hides a modern exhibition behind its venerable walls where you can learn about his life. Nestled in the idyllic countryside, Eisenach is home to a beautiful medieval town center.

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.
