As Martin Luther died in Eisleben on 18th February 1546, the Luther Memorial “Luther’s last residence” can be found here. Nowadays, his last residence is a museum located above the Eisleber Markt.

The exhibition in Luther's death house has the theme "Luther's Last Journey" and tells of this very last journey of the reformer to Eisleben and his last days there. The exhibition focuses on the topics of dying and death and addresses questions such as: What role does death play in Luther's theology and what influence does Luther's theology have on the culture of dying?

From 2010 to 2013, Luther's house of death was extensively renovated and today allows a largely accessible tour of the rooms.
