LUTHERSTADT WITTENBERG First time mentioned in 1183, Wittenberg was the residence of ”Friedrich der Weise” at the
end of the 15th century. His political shrewdness, the university founded in 1502 and the
in uence of Luther and other reformers made Wittenberg become a centre of intellectual life
in Europe for a long time. Playing a big role in Church, Science and Culture Wittenberg is
named “Lutherstadt” since 1938. The “Bauhaus” in Dessau and the “Wörlitzer Gartenreich”,
both are UNESCO world cultural heritages, invite you to linger.
Located directly at the Elbe River, Wittenberg is reachable for cyclists as well as for cars and
