Martin Luther was born on 10th November 1483 in the Lutherstadt Eisleben. Already by the end of the 17th century the house was turned into a public museum.

Luther’s Birth House affected by fire

After a devastating fire in 1689 some renewal work at the house of Luther’s birth became necessary whereby the outside of the house was changed. In the recent past the  Luther’s Birth House was modified by comprehensive renovations and therefore has already won several architecture awards.
