Young Martin Luther moved to Erfurt at the age of 17 to study at the prestigious local university. Four years later, he decided to join the Augustinian Monastery as a monk, honoring the vow he made when trapped in a severe storm. Erfurt is the perfect place to walk in Martin Luther‘s footsteps and track his development from diligent student to powerful preacher. One can even visit the original humble room where Luther lived and worked (Lutherzelle) as a monk from 1505 to 1511.
