As the 500th anniversary of the start of the Reformation approaches, Witte Travel invites you to celebrate Martin Luther’s remarkable legacy in the places where it all began!
Walk in Luther’s humble footsteps across Germany: from the house in Eisleben where he was born, to the cell in the Fortress of Wartburg where he translated the New Testament into German, to the Castle Church in Wittenberg where he nailed his 95 Theses. Experience the rich heritage of your Lutheran faith as you visit the world’s largest Reformation memorial in Worms, or stand in St. Thomas Church where Luther first introduced the Reformation in Leipzig in 1539. While you ponder the significance of the Great Reformer’s life and work, you will also enjoy Germany’s rich culture and its hearty cuisine.
Germany has been preparing for this anniversary since the Luther Decade began in 2008, which will culminate in a worldwide celebration in 2017: the Reformation Jubilee. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in this unique religious and historical event with all of its musical and artistic festivities, and to challenge members of your congregation as together you reflect on the courage and faith of Martin Luther and the other fathers of the Reformation. The potential to enrich your faith through travel is endless!various Order
