Germany: Luther Room in the Wartburg Castle

Today I got two postcards from Germany.

One of them shows the Luther Room in the Wartburg Castle. Martin Luther lived from 1521 to 1522 in the Wartburg Castle and there he translated the New Testament. As it was a secret stay he was called Junker Jörg. The Wartburg Castle is since 1999 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.


The card was sent from the Postcrossing Meet-up at the Wartburg.
Stamp:
Janosch (from set of two) (issued 01-03-2013)


Thank You very much Hanko!
