    Around the monument there are many benches, flowers and lawns. Good for a little break.

    The flanking people sitting below the reformer include Petrus Waldus, John Wyclif, Jan Hus and Girolamo Savonarola.

    Elector Frederick the Wise and Philip the Magnanimous as protectors of Luther, as well as Johannes Reuchlin and Philipp Melanchthon are depicted on the surrounding wall. Allegories can also be seen that refer to historical events of the Reformation. These are the “Augsburg with the Peace Palm”, with reference to the Confessio Augustana from 1530 and the Augsburg Peace and Religious Peace of 1555, the “Protestant Speyer”, with reference to the Reichstag of Speyer in 1529, and the “Mourning Magdeburg” with Reference to the destruction and looting of Magdeburg in 1631 in the Thirty Years' War by the Catholic League under Johann T'Serclaes von Tilly.

    Worms is the beginning of the Reformation. While Girolamo Savonarola 1498 under the Borgia Pope, Alexander VI, was executed as a heretic because of his criticism of the Pope, Martin Luther narrowly escaped this verdict on the Reichstag in 1521. Although the judgment "outlawed", which was pronounced by the emperor against Luther, also included death, but by the supporting princes and his accommodation on the Wartburg Luther was protected. The monument is dedicated to the princes and Reformation cities. It is reminiscent of Luther's saying: "... in my conscience and imprisoned in the word of God ... God help me, Amen." Often misquoted: "Here I stand and can not help it!" The latter quote, however, does not come from Luther. This was later sharpened by an unknown side in the Reformation movement rhetorically to this statement. If you would like to use the visit to Worms to explore Martin Luther's stay, you should also visit the "Luther Room" in the Stadtmuseum (Andreasstift).

    The world's largest Luther monument is in Worms; there are many benches to linger in the adjacent park.
