World Reformation Exhibition in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, 20 May to 10 September 2017
A “green train station” is being built in Lutherstadt Wittenberg with a 700 m2 entrance hall and CO2-neutral operating conditions. Lutherstadt Wittenberg is very well connected: ICE trains run every day and hour to Berlin, Hamburg or Munich. For cities like Frankfurt/Main, Cologne or Hannover you will have to change trains en route.

It is also possible to combine a short break in a Central German city with a visit to the World Reformation Exhibition “Gates of Freedom”. From Leipzig or Dessau-Roßlau it is only a good half hour to Lutherstadt Wittenberg. From Halle (Saale) it takes just under an hour. During the World Reformation Exhibition there will be parking provided for coaches and cars in the area around Lutherstadt Wittenberg. More information on parking will be available from January 2017.
