The Luther Decade Tour Groups

Information for Group Leaders

In 2017 we will celebrate 500 years of the Lutheran Reformation.

There can be no more fitting place to celebrate this momentous occasion than where it all began-in Germany. So why not gather your congregation together and join us during this Luther Decade to follow in the footsteps of the Great Reformer?

Both new and repeat visitors alike will be awestruck by this journey to the land of Martin Luther.

All of the most important Luther sites have undergone a transformation in recent years:

  • the Luther House in Wittenberg is now the largest Reformation Museum in the world
  • the houses in Eisleben linked with Martin Luther's birth and death have been transformed into state-of-the-art exhibitions connecting the development of the Reformation to Luther's own roots
  • in Erfurt both the University and Augustinian monastery have been re-invented in their original roles

You and your group members are guaranteed a tour experience that is not only a spiritual journey of faith, but also scenic and picturesque, educational and informative - truly the experience of a lifetime.
