Castle Church (Schlosskirche), 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 (Schlosskirche) 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 (Schlosskirche) and other Wittenberg attractions using our handy Wittenberg travel itinerary planner.

  • Shortly before the Reformation Jubilee in 2017, the Wittenberg Castle Church is located before its completion. A historical place and landmark with the bronze plaque of the 95 theses in Wittenberg probably best-known. Guided tours are possible, just as the rise of the church tower.
