Luther in Thuringia

2017 marked the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. And although Martin Luther nailed his famous theses to the church door in Wittenberg, in Saxony-Anhalt, it is impossible to miss Thuringia when following the Luther Trail. It was here where he studied, here that he became a monk, here he translated the Bible into German, and here that the Schmalkaldic Articles were created, the most important foundation of the Evangelical-Lutheran faith.

Luther towns and cities such as Erfurt, Eisenach, Schmalkalden, and many others host interesting exhibitions,  events, festivals and scenic tours.
