Germany: Saint Andrew's Church and the Luther Memorial in Eisleben

On Monday I got four postcards from Germany.

One of them shows the Saint Andrew's Church and the Luther Memorial in Eisleben. Martin Luther was born in Eisleben in 1483 and also died there in 1546. The Saint Andrew's Church is a late Gothic hall church. In 1546 Martin Luther gave his last four sermons in the church. It seeks for inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Luther Memorial was erected in 1883. 

To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation a group of Postcrossers organises a series of Meet-ups at important places in Martin Luther's life. The first of four was held last week in Eisleben.


The card was signed during the Meet-up.

Thank You very much Thomas!
