Castle Church, Wittenberg
(3.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Made famous by a visit from Martin Luther--and now his tomb--the spartan Castle Church has a simple floor plan and beautiful stained glass windows. Centuries ago, Luther visited this church and nailed his writing, 95 Theses, to the door. The commentary, which spoke against the corrupt Catholic Church, was quite sensational in its day and had a hand in starting the German Reformation. Now you can visit the Luther's tomb and admire the bronze plaque that marks it. Work out when and for how long to visit Castle Church and other Wittenberg attractions using our handy Wittenberg travel itinerary planner.

  • The door has since been replaced by bronze ones with the 95 Theses engraved on them. The Church has just been reopened to tourists and there was still some work going on in early Nov, when we visited....  more »
  • The Castle Church is reopened only recently and got a very nice visitor center. We strongly recommend a visit.

  • Saxony-Anhalt is easily underestimated, especially the sites of German history. The Castle Church is just one of many remarkably en sightseeing, walking to reach are in the city centre. Focus Martin Luther in Wittenberg, here you can find almost anything on the subject. Wittenberg is worth a trip in any case on Sunday.
