Martin Luther museum reopens

The house in Eisleben where Martin Luther died reopened on 1 February 2013 after undergoing extensive renovation. Visitors will now be able to see where Luther was born in 1483 and where he died in 1546 as part of an exhibition entitled 'Luther's Final Path'. The 1,500 people who visited on the opening day were full of praise for the exhibition and the newly renovated rooms, with many already planning a return trip to fully appreciate everything on display. Music and prayer make this an experience for all the senses and the modern format is intended to give children and young people a better understanding of the subject.

The Luther memorials in Eisleben and Wittenberg have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1996 and are popular destinations for many religious travellers.
