Germany: Following the footsteps of Martin Luther with Romantik
2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg and thus laying the foundation for the Reformation. Various activities commemorating this epoch-making event and its originator will therefore take place in different German regions throughout the year. With the Romantik Hotels & Restaurants you can travel on the trail of the prominent reformer: Some of the 200 Romantik Hotels & Restaurants are located in significant reformation cities such as Nuremberg, Weimar or Dresden.
In the ‘Luther city’ Eisenach, the Romantik Hotel auf der Wartburg welcomes you directly on the castle hill at which Luther found refuge in 1522 and worked on his translation of the New Testament. After visiting the famous “Luther room”, the anniversary exhibition “Luther and the Germans” and his childhood home in Eisenach, you can enjoy the comfort of the luxurious hotel and authentic historic or regional dishes at the hotel’s restaurant.
In Coburg, famous for the castle “Veste” at which Luther stayed in 1530 and which nowadays displays a large collection of documents of this period, the Romantik Hotel Goldene Traube even offers a dedicated Luther package which includes two overnight stays with breakfast and dinner plus the entrance to the most famous sights and a special audioguide for a Luther-themed tour.
