Gates of Freedom

World Reformation Exhibition

Reformation means shaping the future. Seven Gates of Freedom and associated topics displayed on the embankments around the Wittenberg Old Town will offer a glimpse into the future: spirituality; youth; peace; justice and the integrity of creation; globalisation - one world; culture; ecumenism and religion.

At the Reformation Summer 2017, churches from across the world, as well as international institutions, organisations, initiatives and many cultural actors will present their current views on the Reformation. In addition, in the summer weeks from 20 May, a comprehensive programme will be offered on large and small stages around town; on podiums and in tents, you are invited to participate in discussions, debates and much more.

The World Reformation Exhibition offers a surprising, informative and - thanks to the many formats and colours, ideas and sounds, places and smells - a varied daily programme like never before: experience the future today at the place where the world was changed forever 500 years ago.
