Wartburg Castle - 500 Years Reformation
The Legacy of Martin Luther
(A memorable destination - never shown before in a daily tour program in Germany!!!) On 31st of October 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 Thesis to the church door in Wittenberg. The date is considered as the beginning of the Reformation.
What had initially been intended as a critical dispute against the selling of indulgences by the Roman papacy should develop to a movement which totally changed the society and had an incredible influence on the progress of human knowledge and recognition, on language, education and culture, and finally on politics and economy.
Throughout Germany this anniversary will be celebrated with countless grand public events, exhibitions, concerts, performances and festivities, in honor of one of the greatest sons of our country. Upon this great jubilee you can join us to visit one of the most famous Luther sites: The Wartburg Castle (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Here and during his time as a refugee, he translated the New Testament of the Bible into German (see image to the right).
Follow us on a visit through this historic site where the exceptional importance of Luther’s legacy comes once again alive. Recall the most important stages of his life. „Here I stand I can do no other“.
From April to November you can also admire the outstanding NATIONAL Special Exhibition at Wartburg Castle.
