  • We were here in the city but did not have the opportunity to go into the Lutherhalle. We had to be content to view it from the outside. There are fancier houses to look at in the city.

  • Landed here on our tour "in Luther's footsteps". Informative, well done show. A must in Wittenberg

  • The Lutherhaus is a reformation history museum with many special exhibits. Unfortunately the Transfigured Luther impression hangs more, because no critical confrontation with him or his statements is evident (E.g., with his pronounced Jew-hatred). The national exhibition "Luther! "95 treasures - 95 people" in the Augusteum is worthwhile in any case. Here was well under the excellent scientific expert guidance, a fantastic exhibition put together and very well explained. The thematic distribution in 95 treasures in the ground floor and 95 people on the first floor is very. The exhibition '95 people' are some few (3) critical notes on Luther, you must however read and search. His hatred of the Jew is not addressed also here.
