"The monk did it!"

Interactive special exhibition

A wonderful tip for families is the special exhibition "The monk did it!", which is set up in a way that is suitable for children. You and your children can interactively travel to October 31, 1517, the surviving day of the posting of the theses. Luther's dog Booby accompanies you through the exhibition and shows you how people lived 500 years ago and what they believed in. Young visitors can stamp theses, dress up as an elector, trade coins at the market or ride letter carrier's horses.

Tatort 1522

The Luther Bible Escape Game

Where is the mysterious book that Martin Luther is supposed to have begun at Wartburg Castle and finished in Wittenberg? In the summer of 1522, everyone is eager to see the work, but no one can find it. Was it stolen so that it could not be printed?
Solve numerous puzzles with well-known personalities, such as Philipp Melanchthon, Elector Frederick the Wise or Hans Lufft, to uncover the mystery and find the book.

In addition to the actual escape game, the hands-on exhibition with an information room offers more interesting facts about the Luther Bible. Find out which new words we have Martin Luther to thank for, which pop songs feature the Bible, or how many languages it has been translated into.  

The exhibition is suitable for school classes, families and adult groups.
