We visited Lutherhaus just after it opened at 10 am. We were able to miss the large number of tour groups visiting. We spent 2 hours inside and could have spent more. Lots of material to read which brings up that most information was in both German and English. Even some of the multimedia presentations would translate into English. It... More

Having grown up hearing all about the man named Martin Luther, It was another experience to actually go and see where he lived, some of his writings and the history of his life and times. So many amazing things to see and do - make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to look at everything!

Luther's former home is now a museum with many items including his pulpit from St. Mary's Church, an indulgence chest, various paintings including The Ten Commandments by Cranach, Luther's translation of the Bible from 1534.

Wait 'til you see her statue in the courtyard. She's gonna get it done. The former residence of Luther and his family holds an extensive collection of artifacts, furniture and books. Allow at least two hours to see everything. There is no museum pamphlet in English!! I couldn't believe it! The cashier had one in every language except English!! All... More

As someone who loves Martin Luther and is very interested in the history of his life and the Reformation, this museum was an absolute treat! It is beautifully put together and very educational - you could easily spend 3 to 4 hours there. Simply awesome!

The guided tour of this house and museum was good. The house dates to 1504, which is remarkable. There are many exhibits including the 95 Thesis and a Luther translation of the Bible. A very good overview of the man who led the Reformation.

Four levels of the black cloister tell the story of Luther's life and times. Displays and signboards guide the visitor through the key discoveries of Luther's life. Third floor has amazing collection of Luther writings, books about Luther, paintings, sculptures, coins, medallions, etc. Signboards give a good perspective on the spiritual impact of Luther's discoveries, and third floor gives a...

We found the Lutherhaus museum in Wittenberg to be very interesting, with a wide variety of materials such as manuscripts, pictures, furniture, etc, from his life and ministry, including the pulpit he preached at from the City church there. Well organized museum and handy to the train station, just a few blocks from the town square, Castle church, and City... More

When we entered the yard of where the Lutherhaus was located, we were impressed. All was meticulously well maintained and quite attractive. The same is true of Luther's home as well! He lived here for most of his adult life with his beloved Katharina and his six children. He lived already in this house when he wrote the 95 thesis... More

Great tour of Martin Luther's house which is actually part of the original university in Wittenberg. The guide used the house tour to explain the foundation of Protestantism based on Luther's 95 letters protesting indulgences. Walking through rooms hundreds of years old and see many of the original furnishings was fantastic. Make this a stop on your tour if possible.
