Made famous by a visit from Martin Luther--and now his tomb--the spartan Castle Church has a simple floor plan and beautiful stained glass windows. Centuries ago, Luther visited this church and nailed his writing, 95 Theses, to the door. The commentary, which spoke against the corrupt Catholic Church, was quite sensational in its day and had a hand in starting the German Reformation. Now you can visit the Luther's tomb and admire the bronze plaque that marks it. To visit Castle Church on your trip to Wittenberg, use our Wittenberg trip planner.

  • The church tower is superb! 3 euros to go up there and 360 degree view of the town. The church itself is also beautiful, there are so many details everywhere.
  • Amazing building with great history. It is the site where, according to Philip Melanchthon, the Ninety-five Theses were posted by Martin Luther in 1517.
