Lots of reconstruction still going on around the church but the inside with the tombs of Luther and Melanchthon is in great shape. The door with the 95 theses has also been restored.

Would have loved to see the whole place but parts of it were not accessible due to renovations I assume.

I was very fortunate because we visited Wittenberg on a Sunday. The service had finished and people had left the sanctuary and I was able to get inside to see Martin Luther's and Melancthon's tombs. It is ironic that they were buried here as they opposed what this church taught! The building, as others have said, is under renovation for... More

Beautiful- really beneficial to use the self guided resources from the Wittenberg visitors office or take a tour of all of Wittenberg. If u have to make a choice though - I'd go to the Town Church instead.

We were heading for the Schlosskirche. After all this is where Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses on their very door. We were able to see the famous door, but then we realized thanks to info we received from this church, that this was not the wooden door where he posted his theses. The original door doesn’t exist any longer.... More

We were not able to get inside - it was closed for renovations. The workers had torn up the land around the church so you could not get close to the church door where Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses. The door was not the original but...it would have been nice to see it up close.

We were not able to get inside, but even from the outside, this church is spectacular. The doors have a display honoring the Ninety-Five Theses and the architecture is amazing. It is a main stop if you decide to explore this town and former home of Martin Luther.

What can you say, as a history buff and with Luther as a hero, to walk up the street of Wittenburg and see the Castle Church looming in the distant. My steps quickened and my heart did too. I can't tell you how much time my wife and I spent there but it was not enough. We looked at each... More

While this the site of one of the most important moments in European history with Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the church door, it is currently being prepared for the 500 anniversary of this event in 2017. As a result, you are only able to view the church from behind a wire fence. That door and most of... More
