On 31st October 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis, against the abuse of selling indulgences to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. Thus setting up not only changes to the ecclesiastical world, but a worldwide "reformation", in politics, economics, science, theology, art and culture, as well as a motion of social fabric that still leaves traces today.

Since then, the 31st of October has been celebrated as the beginning of the Reformation in Lutherstadt Wittenberg with one of the biggest and most beautiful festivals of Middle Germany, the Reformation Day. This includes a historical market, numerous church services, one of the largest confirmation meetings, theatrical performances, lectures, religious debates and delightful concerts under the program of the Renaissance Music Festival.
Tip: If you plan to visit Lutherstadt Wittenberg around the festival, and experience this unique religious, historical, artistic and musical event, we would recommend making reservations as early as possible due to the high demand.

The Luther Decade is the last 10 years leading up to the 500-year anniversary of the "sale of indulgences" thesis, which is celebrated, nationwide and worldwide in 2017: the Reformation Jubilee.

Lutherstadt Wittenberg will be the central location of this anniversary, as both the home of Martin Luther, and his final resting place, and where he struck his thesis. Today, there is also the largest Reformation history museum in the world.

Each year of the Luther Decade is an essential facet of the Reformation, which is in the forefront in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, with numerous events, exhibitions, congresses, as well as a celebration of music and the arts.
