The European Reformation – Faith-Based Travel

About Brandenburg Gate

A very special trip focusing on Martin Luther. Start in Berlin, visit the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and take pictures of Brandenburg Gate and the Holocaust Memorial. In Wittenberg, visit the Luther House & Museum, and the Melanchthon House, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; also see the gothic St. Mary’s Church (where Luther preached), and the Castle Church. Continue to Leipzig, and visit the Thomaskirche, where J.S. Bach worked. Also included are visits to Luther’s birthplace in Eisleben; the Augustinian Monastery in Erfurt, where Luther lived as a monk; Eisenach’s Wartburg Castle, where Luther translated the Bible; Coburg Fortress, and Worms, where the Imperial Council passed judgment on Luther in 1521. Visit the cathedral where Luther presented his case, Trinity Church, and the famed Reformation Monument. In Mainz, visit the Gutenberg Museum, and a romantic Rhine Cruise is included in the prettiest part of the Rhine Valley. Next is the medieval walled town of Rothenburg, famous for its Christmas ornaments. Follow Luther’s footsteps to Nuremberg and visit the St. Lorenz Lutheran Church, and to Augsburg, where Luther and his followers proclaimed their beliefs. End in Munich and visit Marienplatz with its Old and New Town Halls. An optional excursion to King Ludwig’s Linderhof Castle and the Passion Play town of Oberammergau is available. In the evening, enjoy a farewell dinner at your hotel.
