- Luther site of special interest -
The Protestant Monastery of St Augustine in Erfurt

St Augustine's Monastery in Erfurt is a unique monument to mediaeval religious architecture. At the same time it is not only an internationally recognised conference and meeting centre, but is also, well known world-wide as an important station in the life of Martin Luther. In August 2004 the monastery was certified as a “national heritage site of special cultural interest” (nationales Kulturdenkmal von besonderer kultureller Bedeutung).

Martin Luther lived here as an Augustinian monk from 17th July 1505 until autumn 1511. There is a standing exhibition BIBEL – MONASTERY – LUTHER in the monastery which is well worth seeing. There is also a unique library of historical books.
