Wittenberg

In the steps of Luther

On October 31, 2017, Martin Luther’s recorded posting of the 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberger church castle celebrates its 500th anniversary. While celebrations in earlier centuries were kept national and confessional, the upcoming anniversary of the Revolution ought to be shaped by openness, freedom and ecumenism. In 2017 we aren’t just celebrating 500 years of the Reformation, but we are also reminded of the role the Reformation played in the development of the modern age.  What started in Wittenberg in the 16th century not only changed Germany and Europe but is also an important part of the immigration history of the German-Americans to the USA. Join us for a trip to Germany in the steps of Luther in advance of the 500th anniversary, May 27 to June 5 of 2017.  The German-American Heritage Museum of the USA™ is partnering with German Heritage Travel to offer German Heritage Trips to Europe.   German Heritage Travel will offer discounted fairs to its members as well as to the members of our “Club/Verein Members”.
