Welcome to LutherCountry

Our beautiful region boasts rolling hills, fertile farmland, and dreamy villages whose half-timbered houses are the stuff of storybook fairytales. Romantic castles, elegant palaces, and formidable fortresses still whisper of words spoken and deeds done hundreds of years ago, while the forested Harz Mountains build a pristine wildlife sanctuary in the heart of LutherCountry. Thanks to a rich and tumultuous history, our region is a treasure chest of cultural heritage just waiting to be discovered, including authentic sites with close ties to the great Martin Luther.

The Reformation changed the way people thought about so many aspects of daily life. Although known as a religious reformer, Luther's 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 all the way to North America; in fact, modern Lutheran communities in places such as California, Texas, Georgia, and Minnesota are direct beneficiaries of Luther's legacy!

Although Martin Luther lived five centuries ago, his presence remains tangible today. We invite you to walk in his footsteps and experience fascinating Reformation history first-hand!
