Exhibitions in Lutherstadt Wittenberg

Lutherstadt Wittenberg offers many impressive exhibitions related to the Reformation, such as local history and Christian art.

Since Wittenberg is the starting point of the Reformation, of course, it also deals with many museums in the city with the movement, which was launched here by Martin Luther. In order to learn about the Reformation in general, and its central figures and ideas, you can visit the Cranach houses and Cranach courtyards, the Luther House, and the Augusteum. The Cranach houses and Cranach courtyards are the former homes and businesses by Lucas Cranach the Elder and Lucas Cranach the Younger. The Cranach House now houses the exhibition "Lucas Cranach the Elder - sides of an artist's life" in the Cranach-Hof there is a historical printing shop. In the Luther House, the former home of Martin Luther and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can visit the largest reformation historical museum in the world. Latest showrooms with changing exhibitions are provided in the Augusteum, which is the front building to the Luther House.

In Wittenberg, it not only refers to the Reformation because there is so much history outside of this event. See, for example, the archaeological exhibition at the Alte Canzley to learn more about the origins of the city. For history, which is not so long back, the House of History in Wittenberg is recommended. This collection focuses on the daily lives of people from the 1920s to the 1990. Travel back through time and experience typical habits of different generations of the 20th century. If you are more interested in art, the collection "Christian art in the 20th century" in the Old Town Hall will be interesting for you.
