Luther visited the majestic city of Leipzig on many occasions, and an encounter here is said to have influenced him greatly. It was during the summer of 1519 that he took part in an academic debate at the city's Pleisenburg Castle. Here, confronted by an expert on orthodox theology, Luther gradually developed from being a critic of the Catholic church to a resolute "reformer."

Today, the castle is home to Leipzig's city hall. This and other magnificent renaissance buildings, along with the Church of St. Thomas, where Bach worked and is buried, and the Church of St. Nikolai, make Leipzig a must-see.

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.
