Luther Focus: Wittenberg
Appropriately named, Lutherstadt Wittenberg, the town is considered to be the cradle of reformation - shaped by Martin Luther’s historical legacy. The famous sites, such as the Castle Church where Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door or his former home, now a magnificent museum, are windows into his life and his times.
