Reformation - from a spark to a flame

Luther Memorial, Erfurt

"Here i stand; i can do no other." Martin Luther Few men or women can be described as having "changed the history of the world." However, Martin Luther is one of these rare people. An energetic and charismatic German born in 1483, the Father of the Reformation stands shoulder to shoulder with the giants of history. His influence spread through Western Europe and, with European settlers, to the United States. Lutheran communities scattered across America are all direct beneficiaries of Luther's legacy. Join LutherCountry in celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation! Follow in Luther's footsteps and travel to the cities where he lived, worked, and preached; trace the Protestant religion back to its roots and discover the towering personality behind the Great Reformer. 6

10 Reasons to visit LutherCountry Reason 1: The Word

Eisenach

In the beginning there was the Word, but it wasn't until Martin Luther translated the Bible into German while at the Wartburg Castle in Eisenach that the Word became accessible to the common man. Here, you can visit the room where Luther completed this great work. ( page 11)

Reason 2: Off the beaten path

Schmalkalden

What better way to commemorate a great visionary than by striking off into unknown lands? Take off down the Luther Trail, which passes through Schmalkalden and other LutherCities, connecting many of the locations within LutherCountry. ( page 19)

Reason 3: Medieval marvels

Muehlhausen

LutherCountry is home to many romantic Medieval cities filled with typical half-timbered houses. Muehlhausen and Quedlinburg are two sterling examples, inviting you to travel back in time and wander streets hundreds of years old. ( page 17)

Reason 4: Feel the thunder

Erfurt

In Martin Luther's experience, God's voice indeed "thundereth marvelously", as it did for Job; after being caught in a thunderstorm, Luther faced his own mortality and devoted his life to God. In Erfurt, you can visit the Augustinian Monastery where Luther served as a monk. ( page 11)

Reason 5: Fine art

Weimar 8

Bach, Cranach, Wagner, and Luther: these great men all shared one great passion – the arts. Through their respective mediums, each of them left their mark on LutherCountry and Weimar in particular, which is also famous for its UNESCO sites. ( page 23)


Face One Reformation

Reason 6: The circle of life

Lutherstadt Eisleben

Martin Luther's life both began and ended in Lutherstadt Eisleben. He gave the last sermon of his life in St. Andrew's Church, and Luther's Birthplace and Death House can still be visited to this day. A visit to Luther's Parents' Home in nearby Mansfeld-Lutherstadt will bring your Luther adventure full-circle. ( page 11)

Reason 7: The 95 theses

Lutherstadt Wittenberg

B A U H A U S

Dessau

Come to Lutherstadt Wittenberg and visit the Castle Church upon whose doors Luther nailed his 95 theses almost 500 years ago! Or visit the Melanchthon House and learn more about Martin Luther's formidable "right-hand man", Philipp Melanchthon. ( page 11)

Reason 8: Artistic inspiration Martin Luther's work had a strong influence on the arts and one artist in particular – Lucas Cranach the Elder. Cranach was a strong supporter of Luther and several of his most important works are on display in the Anhalt Picture Gallery in Dessau. ( page 24)

Reason 9: The death mask

Halle (Saale)

Luther often went to Halle (Saale) to preach and the city is nowadays home to a very special artifact – Martin Luther's death mask. The death mask is kept safe in the city's Market Church. Step inside and take a look at the original cast of Luther's face and hands. ( page 17)

Reason 10: Gothicism

Magdeburg

Luther attended boarding school in Magdeburg and the city became a leader in the Reformation. Magdeburg's history spans even further back, with a Gothic cathedral dating back over 1,000 years. ( page 17) 9

Face Two Cultural Heritage

The Luther Connection Considering Martin Luther's impact on the course of history, it comes as no surprise that many cultural highlights have direct ties to him and the Reformation. Some are even on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Lutherstadt Wittenberg The Luther House

UNESCO

The Luther House was home to Martin Luther and his family for almost 35 years. The house now boasts the original Luther Room, or "Lutherstube", and the largest museum of Reformation history worldwide. The exhibition "Martin Luther: life, work and legacy" features over 1,000 items, such as Luther's monk habit and bible. Our tip: The exhibition in the house basement offers a rare look into the personal life of the Great Reformer. Learn more about his wife, how she ran their household, and see scenes from the Luther family's everyday life.  lutherstadt-wittenberg.de Lutherstadt Eisleben UNESCO Luther's Birthplace & Death House The memorial buildings of Luther's Birthplace and Death House are now both museums that allow guests to journey back to his roots. Our tip: Luther was baptized in Lutherstadt Eisleben and an original baptismal font, dating all the way back to 1518, is a must-see part of the Luther's Birthplace exhibition.

Eisenach - Wartburg Castle

UNESCO The Wartburg Castle promises to fulfill all the romantic expectations one can have of a true German fortress. Founded around 1067, this castle houses a museum brimming with unique relics dating back to the Middle Ages. The Castle played a pivotal role in the success of the Reformation, as it was within these walls that Martin Luther hid from those against him, during which time he translated the New Testament into German. Our tip: Visit the original room in which Luther completed his translations and soak in an atmosphere alive with religious and historical significance.  wartburg-eisenach.de Erfurt - Augustinian Monastery Martin Luther first dedicated his life to God here, joining the order as a monk in July 1505. The monastery itself was also influenced by Luther's Reformation and became home to the Lutheran parish of St. John's in 1525. Our tip: The monastery's important role in Luther's life is now honored by the "Bible – Monastery – Luther" exhibition. Come see original prayer cells, the historical library, and other artifacts from Luther's time in Erfurt.  augustinerkloster.de/en

LutherCountry's Cultural Heritage UNESCO

Weimar With three UNESCO World Heritage Sites featuring over 16 UNESCO objects, Weimar is southern LutherCountry's veritable cultural crown jewel. Its three Bauhaus buildings were added to the list in 1996, and another 13 sites from "Classical Weimar" were declared UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites in 1998.

Duchess Anna Amalia Library

The Classic Foundation of Weimar comprises over 20 of Weimar's most distinct cultural highlights, ranging from museums, palaces, and parks to various literary and art collections. These highlights include historical buildings like the Goethe House, Schiller's Home, and the Duchess Anna Amalia Library, as well as outdoor gems like the Park on the River Ilm or the Belvedere Palace. Our tip: To stand in the beautiful Rococo Hall of the Duchess Anna Amalia Library amidst books and stunning works of art is an absolute must while in Weimar. The library also boasts a magnificent Luther Bible from 1534. Due to a limited number of guests allowed, groups should reserve their tickets well in advance.  weimar.de/en

UNESCO

Lutherstadt Wittenberg: Castle Church and St. Mary's Town Church According to legend, it was onto the Lutherstadt Wittenberg Castle Church doors that Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses, thus sparking the Revolution. The original doors have since been replaced with memorial doors of bronze, an impressive tribute to an act that changed the course of history.

Theses door, Lutherstadt Wittenberg

St. Mary's Town Church is the oldest building in Lutherstadt Wittenberg and is home to the stunning Reformation Altar created by the famous Reformation artist, Lucas Cranach the Elder. Our tip: Be sure to visit the graves of Martin Luther and fellow Reformation champion, Phillip Melanchthon, at the Castle Church. Should you be at St. Mary's Town Church between May and October, be sure to sit in on a Saturday evening service – all in English!  lutherstadt-wittenberg.de

Halle (Saale): Francke Foundations The Francke Foundations was founded by August Hermann Francke in 1698 and served as orphanage, school, and center for scientific research. Today, it is also famous for its Cabinet of Artifacts and Curiosities, which is said to be Germany's oldest museum. The Cabinet of Artifacts and Curiosities remains true to its original layout from 1741; with unlabeled artifacts lining the shelves of different cases, the museum places the importance on the collection as a whole, rather than on the relevance of individual pieces. Our tip: The Francke Foundations is part of the cultural experience "Culture Chiefs", or " Kulturhäuptling". This ever-changing series of events presents seven cultural feathers that make Halle (Saale) a cultural citadel and will crown you as a cultural chief. Join us at any time of year in celebrating culture with plenty of exciting highlights.

The Francke Foundations

Halle (Saale): Nebra Sky Disc The State Museum of Prehistory in Halle (Saale) is home to the Nebra Sky Disc, which was discovered near Nebra in 1999 and has been included in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register since 2013. The Nebra Sky Disc dates back to the Bronze Age and is one of the earliest known depictions of the heavens as we know them today. Some 3,600 years old, the disc is made of bronze and covered in gold leaf decorations. In addition to the Nebra Sky Disc, the State Museum of Prehistory displays artifacts that date all the way back to the Early Stone Age, some of which are up to 370,000 years old. Our tip: The State Museum of Prehistory is just one of four fascinating highlights available on the "Sky Paths" tourist route. This route runs through northern LutherCountry and takes you to four archaeologically significant sites, making stops in Halle (Saale), Nebra, Goseck, and Langeneichstaedt.

Erfurt: Merchants' Bridge

Merchants' Bridge, Erfurt

The Merchants' Bridge, or "Kraemerbruecke", in Erfurt exudes a quaint, cobblestoned charm that invites one to linger and wander through the various shops. Built in 1325, the Merchants' Bridge runs over the Gera River and is lined on both sides with houses, deceiving visitors into believing that it isn't a bridge at all. Indeed, it can only be recognized as a bridge when being viewed from the banks of the river. The Merchants' Bridge is the longest series of inhabited buildings on any bridge in Europe, and one could argue that the delicious Goldhelm "Merchants' Bridge Praline" and the shops' handcrafted items are the best of their kind anywhere. Our tip: For the perfect aerial view of the Merchants' Bridge, climb the tower of the Aegidien Church on the bridge's eastern end. The church is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  kraemerbruecke.com Erfurt: Old Synagogue and Jewish Heritage The Old Synagogue in Erfurt is one of the few preserved Medieval synagogues still in existence in all of Europe. Built during the Middle Ages, much of the original structure still stands and is within walking distance from the Merchants' Bridge. The building was restored and eventually reopened in 2009, along with an exhibition of breathtaking Medieval treasures comprising currency and jewelry of the most resplendent silver and gold.

Jewish wedding ring, Erfurt

Our tip: The "Pièce de résistance" of the Old Synagogue's collection of treasure is arguably the famous, intricately designed Jewish wedding ring. As there are only two other rings similar in the world, be sure to see this sparkling piece of history on display in the Synagogue's basement.  juedisches-leben.erfurt.de

Architecture More than just a pretty background

The Bauhaus Building, Dessau Architect Walter Gropius 1925/26

When traveling to a new country, region or city, our perceptions, moods, and emotions are directly, even if unknowingly, influenced by the architectural style of the buildings. A towering, marble cathedral can impart a majestic air to the city below, whereas cobblestoned streets lined with half-timbered houses hundreds of years old can produce an atmosphere instantly quaint, cozy, and inviting. The various architectural styles found in LutherCountry testify to its long and rich history; half-timbered houses, Medieval castles and city centers, Gothic cathedrals, and Romanesque buildings all combine to create a warm, varied, and rich historical feel. Come and be moved by myriad buildings that have stood the test of time and still stand in all their former glory.

Another definite must-see is the Wilhelmsburg Castle and its fascinating Reformation exhibition! Luther House Eisenach Eisenach is home to one of southern LutherCountry’s oldest and most beautiful half-timbered houses: the Luther House. Reopened in 2015, its new exhibition "Luther and the Bible" features historic treasures, surprising insights and innovative takes on exciting Reformation history.

Embark on a journey through the Middle Ages; fairytale scenery is made complete with myriad monasteries, town churches, great cathedrals, and awe-inspiring castles, all built between 950 and 1250. This trail converges in the middle at Magdeburg and passes through Lutherstadt Eisleben, highlighting the St. Mary's of Helfta Convent. Our tip: Stop by the Romanesque Art Center and Romanesque Road Info Center in Magedeburg and dive into the everyday life, beliefs, and customs of the Middle Ages through interactive exhibitions. ďƒ¨ haus-der-romanik.de Gothic Style

This architectural style evolved from the Romanesque style and is characterized by its use of pointed arches. Must-see examples include:

Cistercian monastery, St. Mary's of Helfta Convent

St. Maurice and St. Katharine Cathedral, Magdeburg This imposing cathedral is the oldest in Germany and one of the tallest in eastern Germany. Originally a catholic church, the cathedral was ultimately influenced by the Reformation and held its first Protestant service in 1567. Market Church, Halle (Saale) This late-Gothic construction is truly unique; built from 1529-1554, it combined two churches, thus resulting in the 4-tower anomaly that defines Halle's skyline.

The Hainich National Park is one of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Beech Forests. Covering an area of over 18,500 acres and offering a number of tours, trails, and activities, this is a prerequisite for all nature lovers visiting LutherCountry.

This charming, 35,000-acre English-style landscape, along with its stunning examples of Classical and neo-Gothic architecture, stretches between Dessau and Lutherstadt Wittenberg and is part of the UNESCO Middle Elbe Biosphere Reserve.

Art can be anything from a stroke on a canvas to a note sung or a movement on the stage. Whatever the form may be, true art teaches us something about the artist and ourselves. Peer into the soul of LutherCountry and experience the art created, preserved, and loved by its community. Music and Art: a long-lived tradition Luther's self-composed hymns and energetic promotion of music spurred the Reformation onward and led to a drastic change in Protestant church services. These changes were also reflected in stunning works of art created by some of Germany’s most celebrated painters and composers. There are many opportunities to celebrate this rich artistic tradition during your stay in LutherCountry!

The Luther Connection Lucas Cranach the Elder and Younger Lucas Cranach the Elder was a gifted painter, Reformation supporter, and good friend of Martin Luther. His son, Cranach the Younger, carried on the family tradition and also created breathtaking works of art inspired by the Reformation. Today, LutherCountry invites guests to discover magnificent Cranach altarpieces and art collections in museums across the region, which include a famous portrait of Martin Luther and many religious paintings mirroring Luther's theology. Cranach Sites in LutherCountry • Lutherstadt Wittenberg Cranach House and the "Lucas Cranach and his time” exhibition • Weimar Weimar City Palace Cranach Exhibition; Cranach House; Cranach altarpiece in the St. Peter and Paul Church; and Cranach's grave at the St. Jacob's Cemetery

Church Music and Johann Sebastian Bach "Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world." – Martin Luther Luther introduced the idea that worship should be essentially musical; 200 years later, this idea inspired the great Johann Sebastian Bach, whose Lutheran beliefs resulted in some of the world's finest choral music. Born in Eisenach, Bach also lived in Muehlhausen, Arnstadt, and Weimar, and played the DiviBlasii and Palace Church organs. Eisenach's St. George's Church still houses Bach's original baptismal font, and the city's Bach House Museum offers a unique, hands-on musical experience.  bachhaus.de/en
