The Stadt- und Pfarrkirche St. Marien zu Wittenberg (Town and Parish Church of St. Mary's) is the civic church of the German town of Lutherstadt Wittenberg. The reformers Martin Luther and Johannes Bugenhagen preached there and the building also saw the first celebration of the mass in German rather than Latin and the first ever distribution of the bread and wine to the congregation - it is thus considered the mother-church of the Protestant Reformation. Since 1996 it has been a World Heritage Site - it, the Castle Church of All Saints (Schlosskirche), the Lutherhaus, the Melanchthonhaus and the surrounding Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Realm form the world's densest concentration of World Heritage Sites in one area.

  • The famous church for many painting by Cranach, don’t just take a look of the large alter piece but walk around the back where there are other works by Cranach.

  • Such an AMAZING church. The history represented here is inspirational. Don't forget to check out Sunday services too!
  • Beautiful church with simple but high quality adornments. The baptismal font of Martin Luther is here.
