In the footsteps of Martin Luther, at the very origins of the Reformation
The Luther City of Wittenberg is the city of the Reformation. People flock from all over the world to Wittenberg to follow in the footsteps of the great Reformer, Dr Martin Luther, and to be inspired by the spirit of the time that you can sense everywhere in the historic centre of this city on the Elbe. Wittenberg is a moving, impressive and thrilling place. It has a fascinating wealth of outstanding, historic buildings, churches and museums, fortunately spared by war and the urban redevelopment under communist rule.
Visitors to the city can enjoy its virtually intact historical monuments. The Luther and Melanchton House and the palace and castle church are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Quite apart from these, the unique natural and cultural landscape of the Middle Elbe, comprising further UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the UNESCO Middle Elbe Biosphere Reserve, provides sufficient explanation as to why Wittenberg is a centre of world culture. Leucorea University, the House of History, the Armoury, the Luther 1517 panorama by Asisi and the Hundertwasser School are further reasons to visit this Luther City.
Besides providing insights into the past, Wittenberg has innumerable other things to see and do, which you can discover by taking one of the city tours.
