Jan 21 – Wittenberg

10210 steps today.

This morning we headed to Wittenberg where Martin Luther studied and nailed the 95 articles to the church door – an event that we celebrate as reformation day.  Our tour guide took us through the Luther House as well as a tour through the town including the two churches.

Here our group is standing infront of the famous doors of the castle church.   The church is current being restored to prepare for the 500 year anniversary in 2017,

Look into the lecture hall. It was noted that the students would stand for up to three hours to hear the lectures.  I am not sure if this would work at Calvin.

We then headed to Berlin.  Before stopping at the hotel we visited the Berliner Dom.
