Sunday, January 24, 2016. In the afternoon of the "Snowzilla" blizzard with 29.2 inches of snow. A rare day the church was closed on a Sunday!

Wartburg Castle. One of his greatest supporters, Frederick III the Elector of Saxony, staged Luther's kidnapping after he was declared an outlaw. Disguised as a knight, Luther spent almost an entire year at Wartburg castle, where he translated the New Testament from Ancient Greek into German in just ten weeks. The first pilgrims came to the castle in the 16th century. Today it has some 35,000 visitors every year.

The plaster in the study makes many visitors wonder: Did Luther really throw his inkpot at the wall to chase off the devil?

Castle Church in Wittenberg. The castle church is seen as the home of the reformation. This is where Martin Luther is said to have nailed his 95 theses to the door in 1517. They criticized the sale of indulgences by the Roman Catholic church and called for a return to the word of God. The door and Luther's tomb, also in the church, draw visitors from all over the world.

The life of Martin Luther in pictures

Luther's birthplace. Martin Luther was born on November 10, 1483 in Eisleben which is now in Saxony Anhalt. His birthplace already became a museum back in the 17th century. That makes it one of the oldest history museums in Germany. The rooms on the ground floor show how the Luther family used to live in the former apartment.
