  • This was truly eye opening visitation to me. Martin Luther was indeed a vessel used by God during that age. Staffs were super friendly and the tour guide was informative as well. A must place to visit if happen to be around nearby.
  • Interesting place. I came for the Cranachs and the ten commandments are great fun. But there are portraits and a lot more
  • A lot of history. Very well done. Explains how the church changes in Europe in the 1500s beginning with one monk.
  • Learn everything about Martin Luther and his life. He was actually born here. Very interesting.
  • If you're into religious history, then this is a must to go and see. If you like general knowledge and historical facts, again go. Plenty to see, and absorb the surroundings, marvel at the literature available. If you're a Lutherist you will be in heaven.
