Luther’s home was Mansfeld Land: The future Reformer was born in Eisleben, but just a few months later the Luder family moved to Mansfeld. Luther’s parents settled here, bought a house and founded a company.
Luther lived here for the longest out of all his homes, with the exception of his time in Wittenberg. He spent 13 years in Mansfeld - his school years and his youth: Here, he completed his education that set him on a path to academia. He made lifelong friends and his love of music was awakened. Throughout his life Martin Luther always felt like a “child of Mansfeld” and had a close connection with the county.
Luther’s Parents' Home was completely refurbished in 2014 and expanded with a modern museum building. Discover how Martin Luther spent his formative years here and how he maintained a close relationship with Mansfeld throughout his entire life.
