Made famous by a visit from Martin Luther--and now his tomb--the spartan Castle Church has a simple floor plan and beautiful stained glass windows. Centuries ago, Luther visited this church and nailed his writing, 95 Theses, to the door. The commentary, which spoke against the corrupt Catholic Church, was quite sensational in its day and had a hand in starting the German Reformation. Now you can visit the Luther's tomb and admire the bronze plaque that marks it. To visit Castle Church on your trip to Wittenberg, use our Wittenberg trip planner.

  • The church tower is superb! 3 euros to go up there and 360 degree view of the town. The church itself is also beautiful, there are so many details everywhere.
  • Building is beautiful and Martin Luther did some amazing work, but the people running this place now are not kind and the hours change without notice. Be warned before you make a long trip out here to find out it's closed on a random day it's supposed to be open according to the website
