Wittenberg The Essential
This small town is mainly famous for its connection with Martin Luther. Summoned by the Elector Frederich the Wise to teach philosophy in the newly-founded university, Martin Luther was also appointed town preacher. One year after his death, in 1546, Emperor Charles V seized Wittenberg and legend has it that he meditated over the tomb of the great Reformer.
