Did you know?

LutherCountry is a title given to the combination of two German states situated on the border to each other, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.

LutherCountry

LutherCountry, where you can walk in Luther’s footsteps.

LutherCountry is a beautiful part of Germany. The region includes rolling hills and fertile farmland, dotted with villages, whose half-timbered houses could be straight out of a children's picture book. History lives in the romantic castles, elegant palaces and formidable fortresses. Acting as a natural barrier between Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia are the low, wooded Harz Mountains, featuring the Harz National Park wildlife sanctuary.

LutherCountry also encompasses a wide range of fascinating churches and museums that are perfect for anyone interested in culture or history, as well as for members of the Protestant faith.

Martin Luther’s Reformation changed the way people thought about so many aspects of daily life. Although known as a religious reformer, his ideas were also a catalyst for change in the areas of music, art, architecture, politics, and social responsibility.
His influence spread through Western Europe and, with European settlers, to the United States. Lutheran communities scattered amongst different States such as California, Texas, Georgia and Minnesota, are direct beneficiaries of Luther’s legacy.
Although Luther lived five centuries ago, his presence is still tangible. In Germany, you can literally walk in his footsteps and do so much more. You can…

  • Examine the notes that he wrote on the pages of his Bible
  • Photograph the table where he ate and worked
  • Admire the pulpit where he preached and where pastors still preach today
  • Step into the very room where he translated the New Testament
  • Eat the type of sausage he enjoyed
  • Taste beer brewed the way he liked it
