"Everything that is done in this world is done by hope."
Lutherstadt Eisleben was Martin Luther's beloved hometown and the place where he spent his first and final moments on this earth. Born here in 1483, Luther returned to the city many times throughout his life before, in a poetic turn of events, he died here in 1546. Today, you can still find families with the last name "Luder" (his original family name) living in the area.
