We visited the Luther Haus with our tour guide, who provided a lot of insightful information, making the various statues and architectural features stand out. Later I visited the museum, which was interesting, but a bit ordinary.

This site will celebrate 500 years (in 2017) since Luther nailed the edicts to the door of the Cathedral. He and his wife lived here and met with others in their plans for the Reformation. It is an important historic site even if one is not religious. I particularly liked the living room/sitting room with a big ceramic stove in... More

Limited access due to remodeling and exhibits sent to a special exhibit in Minnesota. Confirm what is available.

It doesn't open until March 2017 for the 500th anniversary they offered a picture gallery instead but we decided that we can look at pictures in a book and decided not to pay the six euro per person

We were able to get into the courtyard, but the house interior was being renovated. But we did take the city walk, saw the church inside and other Luther associated buildings.

From a street you walk though a connecting portal of two buildings of where Luther taught to his home. The home is impressive in the style and unique aspects of the door. A statue of his wife stands not far from the door. The history flows from every where around you. I cannot tell you about the interior which was... More

Back in 1505, this was an Augustinian monastery. Later it became the home of Martin Luther Today it's the largest reformation museum in the world. There are about 1,000 original exhibits which tell the family life and work and his influence on history. Many exhibits include manuscripts, furniture, coins, medals from the 9 centuries, charts, and the pulpit from which... More

Martin Luther's home has been well-taken-care-of and a highlight of the visit is the family's gathering room, which has been preserved from when the Luther family lived there. (Look for Peter the Great's graffiti-ed signature in Cyrillic) The archaeological dig behind the hall is interesting, and on sunny days (it was raining when we were there) there is a little... More

We started our day in Wittenberg with a visit here. It is close to the main train station and is a natural starting point for the rest of a day visiting the sites in town. This really is a well done and worthwhile place to refresh your knowledge of all things Luther/Reformation. We had a tour guide with us who... More

We visited Lutherhaus just after it opened at 10 am. We were able to miss the large number of tour groups visiting. We spent 2 hours inside and could have spent more. Lots of material to read which brings up that most information was in both German and English. Even some of the multimedia presentations would translate into English. It... More
