Hop onto the one of Germany’s sleek ICE high speed trains in Berlin and get right into the heart of the pretty medieval town of Wittenberg in just 45minutes. It was in Wittenberg where a young rebellious monk by the name of Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of Wittenberg’s Schlosskirche and started the Protestant Reformation movement. Wittenberg is the place where history was made: the cradle of a religion that between 800 and 900 million Christian people follow today.
Follow your expert DD guide in the footsteps of Martin Luther and his cohorts, Phillip Melanchthon or Lucas Cranach. See the 95 Theses, now engraved in solid metal, and pay your respects at Martin Luther’s final resting place. Add Lutherhaus museum to your itinerary, the house where he studied and lived with his family for 25 years, and why not stay overnight in a room with a view: overlooking the Schosskirche’s legendary door?
