The Luther500 Fest, June 27 - July 3, 2022, is a seven-day fun-filled European vacation for all ages, an immersive experience that brings the Reformation to life as you learn, serve, and celebrate in the places where Martin Luther did the same 500 years ago. It's Lutheran family camp. It's continuing education. It's European vacation. It's all rolled into one. The Festival is the very best way to see the key Luther sites as participants come face to face with the breadth and importance of the Reformation, make new friends, connect with their heritage, and experience first hand how Church history can be a whole lot of fun.
Travelers arrive on a Monday and depart on a Sunday. The home for the first part of the week is Wittenberg, the town where Martin Luther taught and lived. From here day excursions will go to other Luther sights like Erfurt, Eisleben, Leipzig, as well as to Berlin. From Wittenberg, die Fest visits the Wartburg, and moves to Worms. It was here that in 1521 Martin Luther stood firm for his faith against the Kaiser and Pope.
Key piece of the Fest, the Interest Centers, will include the historic homes, museums, exhibits and churches; recreation, arts and service options; workshops, tours, lectures and presentations by invited experts and local guides; and gemutlichkeit. Morning and Evening prayers will be offered in the historic churches and at historic Reformation sites.
If you only have a small crowd and could not do a full group tour to Europe: Gather the few, and join the Luther500 Fest!
