    There are important buildings, including the Luther House, most of which have been preserved in their original form since the Reformation. Many events and special city tours take place there. 2017 was the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. The Castle Church, the Luther House, the City Church of St. Mary and the Melanchthon House are all UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

    Right on the bike path: Tourist Information at Schlossplatz 2. You can find the current opening times here: lutherstadt-wittenberg.de/service/tourist-information

    Wittenberg is a place where you should interrupt your tour along the Elbe for a day or two. Rich in tradition with a moving history, i.a. Site of Luther, the founder of the Reformation.

    Was in town during the 9th Wittenberger Radsporttage. On the weekend, the city pulsated: cycling through the city, evening night race, market with stage and music everywhere. It was an experience and a great start for my bike ride.

    Lutherstadt Wittenberg, even the name is like music. A visitor magnet is Luther's wedding, which is reenacted every year. Then here is the Middle Ages to experience again in full bloom.

    Even though Wittenberg had to hand over his Saxon capital function to Torgau after the death of Frederick the Wise, his position as the center of the Reformation movement, for B. in the Wittenberg Agreement and the emergence of the first Luther Bible. In order to meet the increasing demands of the growing population in the then limited territorial city, extensive construction took place during this time. 1526 was again begun to expand the fortifications further. A new town hall and a drinking water supply system, the Röhrwasser, were built in the late 16th century. "

    On the towers of the city church lived until 1945 Anna Otto, a Turkish woman. The home club lets the apartment refurbish which can then be visited by appointment.

    We learned at school, Wittenberg is the city where Martin Lutter lived, worked and lived. As a child I wanted to visit this historic place.
    Then the border was closed and I thought my dream had burst and I never get there.
