Luther's Wedding – The Wittenberg Festival
Fanfares, processions, historical re-enactments: Lutherstadt Wittenberg is never short of ideas when it celebrates the wedding of Martin Luther and Katharina von Bora every year in the town where they exchanged vows.
For three whole days, the sound of Renaissance music and historical performances echo around the old quarter, and more than 2,000 'wedding guests' in authentic costume accompany the happy couple in a grand procession through the old town. When evening descends, it's party time for all – and the music comes full circle to the modern day.
