Reformation 500: My Trip To Luther’s Wittenberg

In January 2016, I had the privilege of taking a day trip to see the small town of Wittenberg, Germany. Why would I choose to go there specifically? It is arguably the heart of the Protestant Reformation (along with Geneva, Switzerland & others). The German Reformer, Martin Luther, lived, taught, preached, and is now buried in this town. Perhaps the most significant event that happened here was Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the Catholic Church in Wittenberg which pushed the Protestant Reformation into motion. This event took place on today (31 October) 500 years ago exactly and the world has never been the same!

Today, Wittenberg is a quiet town (at least it was when I was there). Not many cars on the road, not many people wandering the streets, not many free wifi places to be found. The town hosts many guests from all over the world each year who are eager to see one of the most significant homes of the Protestant Reformation. I spent approximately 4 hours in Luther’s home & could not possibly post all the interesting content housed here. Nevertheless, here are some photos from my trip to Luther’s Wittenberg, Germany. All of these photos were taken by me & may contain content belonging to Luther’s House.
