In 1517, Martin Luther started the Reformation by allegedly nailing his 95 theses to a church door in Wittenberg. Various sites in the city recall these exciting events. Check-in presenter Nicole Frölich explores them for us.
On the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, Check-in presenter Nicole Frölich explores Wittenberg – the city that has more historical ties to Martin Luther than any other.
Martin Luther often travelled from Wittenberg to Torgau, a mere 50 kilometers (31 mi) away. The town on the river Elbe was to become one of the most important political centers of the Protestant Reformation.
Torgau is a significant location in the history of the Reformation. It became the political hub of Protestant Reformers and it was here that allegiances were formed to defend the new religion.
In contrast to three national Martin Luther exhibitions in Germany, a new international show in a former jail in Wittenberg entitled "Luther and the Avantgarde" triggers controversy with works by 66 artists.
