Meet a guide at a central location in Frankfurt, then make the 127-mile (204-km) trip to Wartburg Castle in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Upon arrival at the castle, you’ll learn the some of Martin Luther’s history, from his early days as a student to his “Ninety-Five Theses” against the Catholic practice of selling indulgences.
Martin Luther worked in hiding at Wartburg Castle, translating the New Testament, and developing his ideas. Visit the fascinating castle with the guide, tracing Martin Luther’s footsteps through the 12th century fortification.
Following your tour of Wartburg Castle, continue to the nearby community of Eisenach for some time to explore on your own. Find a local café for lunch, stroll the historic streets, and soak up the atmosphere of the small city, which looks out over the Hörsel River.
At the end of the day, meet back up with the guide and group for the return trip to Frankfurt, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.
