  • A beautiful church building inside and out. The effect of Martin Luther was the destination of our journey. We stopped and were very close to Martin Luther. The exhibition is rounded off the visit.

  • Here, Mr. Luther preached at the time. To the Church around in masonry old gravestones are, because to the Church at the time the cemetery, before he to was moved into the Dresdener Straße. Inside, the Church is important to visit due to the altar. Who has good luck and must climb the Tower, which can detect the Luther in the pavement from above on the marketplace. Also the Jewish pig, an abusive image against the Jews, which was based on Martin Luther's times - is located at the Church of the City currently is still hotly debated whether this work there may or may not remain.

  • A visit to the town church, where Luther regularly preached, was of course during our visit to Wittenberg on the weekend before the Reformation Jubilee. As former Catholics the Protestant simplicity again we impressed, although there still is to admire many interesting works of art inside. We would like to especially mention the the Reformation altarpiece by Lucas Cranach the elder. Ä and the oldest piece of equipment of the Church, the baptismal font built in 1457. Important to mention is also the sandstone relief on the outer South-East corner of the choir room, the Schmah-and ridicule image on the Jews, the "Jewish sow". Randomly, however, a demonstration took place on the market square in front of the Church, who worked on a distance of this Schandmals out. Fortunately, however, the City Council has decided to get this important testimony of historical significance as a Memorial and memento. in 1988, a memorial plaque as a Memorial was built including in the paving of the church square. It refers to the Holocaust as a historical consequence of this Jew hatred.
