Lutherstadt Wittenberg is famous for the reformer Martin Luther and the painter and printmaker Cranach. Wittenberg became one of the most important German towns of political, cultural, historical and artistic advances in the 16th century. The famous reformation places in the historic centre and the buildings developed in different epochs are forming the architecture of the town. It has been 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. Although there is no historical proof of this happening, it was an event that changed the world. The reformations caused bitter religious and cultural battles. One of Lutheraeuros great achievements was translating the Bible into the vernacular (instead of Latin). Germany is paying tribute to one of its greatest sons with an entire decade devoted to Martin Luther: monk, professor and church reformer.
