Wittenberg in Germany to host 500th anniversary of Luther’s Protestant Reformation

Published on : Thursday, July 6, 2017

Wittenberg in GermanyIf you’re anywhere in Germany this year, you will hear the name of Wittenberg again and again. This year marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s public plea that triggered the Protestant Reformation. From May to November, millions of visitors are expected to attend more than 2000 events throughout Germany honoring Luther’s legacy as part of Reformation Summer.

 
Official estimates say that around 2 million tourists will visit Wittenberg this year.

 
Wittenberg’s mayor, Jochen Kirchner said, “I like to think that we are the biggest small town in the world. We have been preparing for this moment for so long, and now it’s our time to shine.”

 
But with such a large number of visitors pouring in this year, Wittenberg with only 2000 hotel beds could face a problem accommodating those visitors.
