Climate friendly travel
By train and without traffic jams comfortably to Lutherstadt Wittenberg.
In October 1517, the monk, preacher and professor Martin Luther posted his 95 theses against the sale of indulgences on the portal of the Wittenberg Castle Church - with major consequences for all areas of life.
Many streets in Wittenberg's old town are narrow, some of them still paved with cobblestones. The magnificent houses of the historic center have survived the war almost unscathed, cozy restaurants and cafés await in secluded squares, and in summer there is an almost Mediterranean lightness. Yet weighty things once happened here. After Martin Luther (1483-1546), a professor of biblical studies, posted his rebellious theses on the castle church portal, the Reformation took its course. Traces of this can still be seen today when strolling through the city, and several memorials have been recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. In addition to the castle church and St. Mary's (Luther's place of preaching, the "mother church of the Reformation"), the highlights include the Luther House, where the reformer once lived and worked for 35 years - today it is the largest museum in the world dedicated to the history of the Reformation.
The special tip: Very relaxing is the stroll along the "Green Route" of the old town of Wittenberg, which connects many gardens and parks.
Good connection by train: Wittenberg's main train station can be reached by ICE train from Berlin in 40 minutes, and from there it is only about 10 minutes' walk to the Luther House.
