  • Admission is 8Euro, but it's pretty impressive. There is a huge exhibition on the third floor of the building. There is a room where Luther did bible study fellowship in the afternoon. On the other hand, there is also a safe containing the money the church got by selling the pardon. The articles of The Kejo were printed and spread by the technology of the time, and the Bible of the time was also on display.

  • A must-do if you are staying in Wittenberg. The museum gives a lot of information about Luther and how he lived here. For younger children it is often not very exciting what is to be seen. Extensive collection on the various subjects of Luther's life and doctrine.

  • This was truly eye opening visitation to me. Martin Luther was indeed a vessel used by God during that age. Staffs were super friendly and the tour guide was informative as well. A must place to visit if happen to be around nearby.
  • Interesting place. I came for the Cranachs and the ten commandments are great fun. But there are portraits and a lot more
