On the go

Kirchentag on the Way

Six Kirchentag in eight cities: Leipzig, Magdeburg, Erfurt, Jena/ Weimar, Dessau-Roßlau and Halle/Eisleben: cultural, spiritual and tourism stops on the way to the joint festive service on 28 May 2017 in Wittenberg:


  • Experience Reformation history live
  • Rediscover an old cultural landscape in the heart of Germany
  • Meet Christian communities in a secularised region of Germany
  • Enjoy music, spirituality and culture


On Ascension Day, an ecumenical church service held at the same time in all Kirchentag-on-the-Way cities will connect them with the German Protestant Kirchentag in Berlin and Wittenberg. From Thursday 25 May to Saturday 27 May, each city will celebrate 500 years of the Reformation with their own programmes and an individual focus on different topics. Then, on Sunday, everyone is invited to the Festive Service in front of the gates of Wittenberg.
