We booked a guided tour of Wittenberg at the tourist information. The tour included a talk about the history of Luther's theses and the church door, a walk down the main street, the market square, town church, the old university and a tour of the Lutherhaus, Luther's home.

Generally it was a good tour, our tour guide was knowledgable, but only about Wittenberg. The reformation process was started here, but other places throughout Europe also took part in it, something which our tourguide had never heard about. I don't know if it was local pride or simply not knowing. I suppose I couldn't expect her to know all about it , but it was somewhat disappointing that she apparently knew nothing about the reformation outside of Wittenberg.

The tour was 8 Euro.
