Luther's Death House

Martin Luther died in Eisleben on 18 February 1546 during one of his journeys to the Mansfeld region. The inspiring exhibition in the house where he died focuses on Luther's last journey, his approach to death and shows how the Reformation changed our view of death. The staged historical death rooms are one of the highlights.
