Ranked #2 of 28 things to do in Wittenberg

Attraction details
Reviewed 30 March 2018 via mobile

Luther's house is also a museum, full of very interesting and well illustrated pieces, in which one can retrace the story of his life and understand the genesis of the Protestant reform. If you switch from Wittenberg, it remains one of the most important places to visit!

You can explore the grounds of the house and not pay for the tour. The gift shop is also available to you without the purchase of the tour. Many statues open in the grounds of the home. Visited during the reformation.

This museum is in the house Luther lived with his wife and children in the 1500s. It includes actual living quarters, his publications and library, many portraits, historical timeline and is very well done.
The museum has three floors of exhibits.

Luther's house, the former Augustinian monastery built in 1504, is one of several UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Wittenberg and the surrounding area. This is a significant location in the history of the Lutheran Reformation. Luther lived in the monastery with the other monks until the Reformation began. It was here he wrote his 95 Theses. The monasteries had been closed after the Reformation began, so when Luther returned from hiding in the Wartburg Castle in 1521, the Elector of Saxony gave Luther the empty monastery as his home. Here Luther lived with his wife Katie and their children, and Martin and Katie entertained as many as 100 guests and boarders at a time. The Lutherhalle is quite large and houses an incredible museum of artifacts and art work of Luther and the Reformation including rare printings of Luther's writings and sermons. It takes at least a half day to work your way through the various rooms of the museum, but here you will see Luther's living quarters including his work room where he wrote, drank beer and wine with friends and colleagues and discussed theology.
