Exhibitions in Lutherstadt Wittenberg
Lutherstadt Wittenberg offers many impressive exhibitions related to the Reformation, such as local history and Christian art.
Since Wittenberg is seen as the starting point of the Reformation, many of the city's museums naturally focus on the movement that was started 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, Markt 4 now houses the exhibition "Lucas Cranach the Elder - sides of an artist's life". In the Cranach Courtyard, Schlossstraße 1 you will find 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 addition to interesting facts about the Reformation, Lutherstadt Wittenberg also has an exciting history outside of this event. For history not so long ago, we recommend the House of History in Wittenberg. This collection focuses on the daily lives of people from the 1920s to 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 of the Christian Art Foundation in the Castle will be interesting for you.
