I visited right after they reopened. It was a great trip with lots of different exhibits. My favorite is the Cranach Ten Commandments piece, but the museum includes other pieces of art and many first editions of Luther's works. If you're interested in Luther, you cannot miss this place!

I got the chance to visit Lutherhaus just after it reopened, in time for the 500th Anniversary. The museum gives great detail into Luther's life and the history of Germany/Europe in that time period. One sad detail, in the obvious rush to complete the museum in time, the English translations rarely went well. There were spelling mistakes and miss-translations on... More

The renovations are nearly complete to celebrate the life and work of Martin Luther. Our group was sad to miss this site but enjoyed the rest of the town on our tour.

It was interesting to visit Martin Luther’s house and monastery last year so close to the 500th anniversary of his nailing his 95 theses against indulgences on the door of the All Saints Church (also called Castle Church) on October 31, 1517, thus starting the Reformation. Luther was first to translate the Bible from Hebrew and Greek to German. He... More

The actual house was closed for renovation. However the garden was lovely and the audio tour was very helpful. Well worth a visit as part of the overall Wittenberg visit.

We visited the Luther Haus with our tour guide, who provided a lot of insightful information, making the various statues and architectural features stand out. Later I visited the museum, which was interesting, but a bit ordinary.

This site will celebrate 500 years (in 2017) since Luther nailed the edicts to the door of the Cathedral. He and his wife lived here and met with others in their plans for the Reformation. It is an important historic site even if one is not religious. I particularly liked the living room/sitting room with a big ceramic stove in... More

Limited access due to remodeling and exhibits sent to a special exhibit in Minnesota. Confirm what is available.

It doesn't open until March 2017 for the 500th anniversary they offered a picture gallery instead but we decided that we can look at pictures in a book and decided not to pay the six euro per person

We were able to get into the courtyard, but the house interior was being renovated. But we did take the city walk, saw the church inside and other Luther associated buildings.
