Experience the historic city center of Wittenberg with its Castle Church and the famous door where Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses. Stroll around the streets and follow the footsteps of Martin Luther and his colleagues. You would never guess that his little quiet town was the center of one of the most well-known religious revolutions in the world. The events that unfolded here in the 16th Century changed the foundations of Christendom. It was here where Martin Luther lived and preached, and on October 31, 1517, he nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church. The Protestant Reformation had begun. Sometimes called the “Rome of the Protestants”, many Luther memorial sites were added to the UNESCO world heritage list in 1996.
