Erfurt, cloister in St. Augustine's Monastery

St. Augustine's Monastery in Erfurt – stay where Martin Luther once lived

Martin Luther spent six years living in St. Augustine's Monastery in Erfurt. The late reformer prayed, studied, taught and was ordained here. Today, this historic site serves as a meeting place and conference venue. It is also open to anyone wishing to spend a night in the monastery's peaceful setting.

Those eager to learn more about the history of the Bible, the life of an Augustinian hermit monk or Martin Luther's time in Erfurt can visit the permanent exhibition entitled "Bible-Monastery-Luther" in the former monks' dormitory in the monastery. The Augustinian monks began construction of the church and cloister in 1276. Eighty years later, most of the other buildings in the monastic complex were complete. The closed style of the complex is impressive, and it also features an outdoor pulpit to allow services to be held outside.

On the inside, visitors' attention turns to the stained-glass windows which date back to around 1310 to 1330. The historic library holds some 60,000 volumes – making it one of the most important church book collections in Germany. The chapter house in the east wing of the conclave, which dates back to the first half of the 14th century, has an imposing look. This is also where Martin Luther was ordained.

Visitors staying in the Georgenburse pilgrim hostel, one of the city's five Luther sites, ought to feel quite close to Martin Luther as this is where he lived before joining the monastery.

It's as simple as it is ingenious: Erfurt's Cathedral Hill, where St. Mary's Cathedral and the Church of St. Severus stand side by side, provides a dramatic backdrop all year round. 

And drama is what you can expect at the Cathedral Steps Theatre Festival. Every July since 1994, its organisers have staged either a musical or an opera and a play for children on this spot, using the architecture to brilliant effect. The result: an event that none of the hundreds of thousands of visitors each season are likely to forget in a hurry.

 Erfurt's Christmas Market is one of the loveliest in the whole of Germany and is the largest in Thuringia.

Erfurt’s medieval old town centred on Domplatz (Cathedral Square) is the perfect setting for the specially atmospheric time of Advent.
You will find traditionally crafts and Thuringian specialities and also an enormous Christmas tree decorated with candles, a crib scene and hand-carved, almost life-size figures. There are also plenty of showman-like traders.

A varied events programme is on offer especially on the Advent weekends.
