The list of other great musical names in Leipzig is long, stretching from Mendelssohn, the Schumanns and Wagner to Kurt Masur.

Cultural Tour 2:

From Leipzig to Wittenberg – Home of the Reformation

Friday, June 24, 2022

Almost everything in Wittenberg reminds us of Martin Luther. There is the Castle Church with the famous door to which Luther nailed his 95 Theses, and with the tombs of Luther and Melanchthon. There is the town church with the Cranach altar, there is Luther Hall, Melanchthon’s house, and the residential palace of the elector. All that has made Wittenberg world famous happened within just 20 years. The town's great story began in 1517 when Luther emerged with his 95 Theses, and it continued until 1546 when he was buried in the Castle Church. Shakespeare gave the town a place in world literature by having Hamlet study there. Visit the town known as the “Mother of the Reformation”, and set off on the trail of the movement which was born here and has changed the world.
