Castle Church

On 31st October 1517 Martin Luther nailed his ninety-five theses to the main door of the Castle Church which triggered the Reformation. Today the graves of Martin Luther and his friend and reformer Philipp Melanchthon are located inside the church.

The Castle Church was listed as UNESCO-World Heritage Site in 1997.
