“Martin Luther's House Museum Taught Me Alot”

Lutherhalle/Lutherhaus
Ranked #2 of 27 things to do in Wittenberg
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Martin Luther's House Museum is a former monastery where Martin Luther taught students and eventually where he came to live with his wife and family. The museum explains many of the events in Martin Luther's life and how he brought about the Reformation of the Catholic Church and the schism that brought the Lutheran Church into being.

The museum contains many pictures of Martin Luther, both good and bad. It explains the political and social atmosphere and the effect of creating a strong separation between church and state with the community collecting money to help the poor and to pay the ministers for their work in their community.

There's many books along the way, many examples of his writings, many pictures created by Cranach the Elder and the facility itself to see. This museum is very informative and many tour groups came to say prayers/mass also.

This is a must for any one interested in religous culture. In the garden there is a strong sense of the past , whilst the museum has been tastefully renovated

The history of Luther is presented nicely in this museum-house that Luther's family occupied for some time with many of the publications he authored on display. Enjoyable!

This is a lovely old building with many interesting things to see even if you are not religiously inclined. Cranach's painting of the ten commandments is worth a visit in itself.

For some people - especially devout Lutherans of course - the Lutherhaus will have a meaning and an emotional resonance that it won't have for others. In particular, people expecting to learn about life in Wittenberg, domestic interiors, etc, in those days won't get much out of it.

The large Ten Commandments painting (attrib. Lucas Cranach the Elder, a friend of Luther's) in the meeting room on the ground floor is fascinating, and the explanations on the display-stands are excellent.

Even with the lift, there's a fair bit of walking if you want to see it all, so go slowly if you have mobility problems.
