The seeds of the Reformation began in the Stadtkirche of St. Mary's. Martin Luther preached here more than in any other church. The Wittenberg City Council entrusted Luther with the management of the church's ministry. He held this position for more than 30 years. The...More

Beautiful and historical significant, this is the church where Luther preached. We had a chance to attend worship here, and the sound of the music was so beautiful.
