Martin Luther declared that the buildings in Torgau were more beautiful than any from ancient times. That is still true today. With five hundred Renaissance and late-Gothic buildings, Torgau in Saxony is an architectural gem of international standing.
There is much to delight today's visitors to Worms, from the Romanesque imperial cathedral to the multimedia exhibition at the Nibelung Museum. For Martin Luther however, this historical town on the Rhine held far less pleasant associations.
The town of Zeitz is associated with Martin Luther's successors. Indeed, Luther's male descendants all left their mark on the town. In 1542 Luther ordained Nicolaus von Amsdorf as the first Protestant bishop at the Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul in Zeitz.
