About this trip

It's quick and easy to reserve your spot for this once-in-history event. The week starts in Wittenberg, Germany, and then we travel to Worms together. See the detailed itinerary below.


Housing includes two options: Local 3- 4 star hotels, as well as Jugendherbergen conference center.


It's a few quick clicks to make your reservation now, and you can select options (airport shuttles, day trips) much closer to the event, even spring of 2021, once you know where and when you'll be flying, etc.  For now, just decide if you want the hotel option, (single room or shared), or if you want the Conference Center option, (your own family/group room or a shared room with other participants). Make a 10% deposit to hold the space, and then you can pay over time as you like.

The main thing is let us know you are coming, and you can talk over details and options over the course of the coming months, and call or email us for more information if you like.


Bring Your Friends!

But do add your registration(s) to help us get to 150! Deposits of course would be refunded in full if we do not reach 150 registrations. So, register now, and invite your friends so we can confirm!

Itinerary

Arrive in Wittenberg
Monday, June 14, 2021

The Luther500 Fest begins! 


Whether you are coming right from home, or you've been travelling in Europe already for a few days: This is the time to arrive in Wittenberg. Airport shuttles are offered from Frankfurt and Berlin.

Settle in, have a look around the City of The Reformation, a lovely medieval town, the location of the Thesis Door, the historic churches where Luther preached thousands of sermons and is buried, the homes of Martin and Katie Luther, Philip Melanchthon, Johannes Bugenhagen and Lucas Cranach, and the associated museums and exhibits. 

Meet the whole group at 6:00pm for a Welcome Bratwurst BBQ.  Introductions and music with Lost And Found and friends.

Get to know a few new friends, and head over to church for a brief Evening Prayer time -- you'll have special and private access to this sacred and historic space as a participant in this Luther500 event.

If you are still awake, join others for Gemutlichkeit in a biergarten.

There was lots to see in Luther's Germany. There was a good mix of down time and scheduled activities and sites. Our interpreter was wonderful, and the planners did such a good job. It was my first time to Germany and I loved it. Thank you.
We had an awesome trip!!! Wonderful people, delicious food, beautiful setting, comfortable accommodations. Well planned week of activities. Loved the music, the worship experiences, the history!!! Learned so much ! We would recommend this tour to others and have done so!!! We would LOVE to come back! It was truly a blessing! We will never forget our trip to Germany!!! And the wonderful friends we made! With joy and thanksgiving, Dorothy and Pat Longshore
This was a once in a lifetime experience. We greatly enjoyed our time in Wittenberg and the bus tours. Wonderful people to share a week with. Christian and Daria were exceptional in their attention to detail and knowledge of the area. So thankful for them and Michael and George. Definitely recommend this trip to anyone interested in the history of Luther and the beautiful country of Germany!
I had a really great time. It was so interesting and enjoyed the tours. Nice balance of free time and organized tours. Great organizers too! I'd love to go again.
