Martin Luther once said that Erfurt " is the perfect place for a city." He lived in the Augustinian abbey here as a monk from 1505 to 1511. Once the economic, spiritual, cultural and political center of Thuringia, the city always attracted famous personalities: Martin Luther, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Friedrich Schiller, and Johann Sebastian Bach to name a few. Buildings reminding us of these characters, such as the abbey or the Imperial Hall, have been renovated to give visitors a very realistic image of the past. Home also to the Krämer Bridge, the longest inhabited bridge in Europe, Erfurt is well worth a visit!    

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.
