The Kurtheater (Goethe Theater), which still has the original stage machinery, was built in 1802 in Lauchstädt and is one of the most important memorial sites of Goethe’s work. Guided tours as well as a stroll through the spa gardens are two possible ways to conclude a visit to Bad Lauchstädt.
23 Allstedt
The Imperial palace and the Reformation site of Allstedt is where reformator Thomas Müntzer worked. He held the first all-German spoken worship service here. He had a lasting impact on the German language with his writings and lyrics.
24 Lutherstadt Eisleben
Eisleben was not only the place where Martin Luther was born and died, but also the place that influenced his linguistic creativity. This in turn affected the development of how the new high German written language was developed. Luther delivered his final sermons in the St. Andreas church.
25 Mansfeld
Martin Luther spent his childhood in Mansfeld. His parental home gives visitors a realistic impression of the environment where he grew up and what influenced him. The Bürger-Museum is dedicated to the Münchhausen-poet Gottfried August Bürger, who was born and raised in Molmerswende.
