I just did this tour about a week ago in January 2024 and although Wittenberg is a little out of the way from the normal tourist spots in Germany it is very well worth the trek. My tour guide took me on a two-hour walking tour of Luther's Wittenberg home, a brand new Luther museum featuring a UNESCO-protected undelivered letter written by Luther to Charles V and Luther's actual pulpit, and of course All Saints' Church. The tour is capped off by seeing the Ninety-Five Theses on the famous doors of All Saints' Church and Luther's burial spot inside the church. This is a must-do trip for lovers of history!

Little confusing when we got dropped off did t tell us to go to hotel not spa but the balance of the two days were amazing- relaxing- hassle free - wonderful experience

It was a very information-packed tour. An excellent tour guide. In the two hours we saw a lot and learned a lot of new things about Mannheim. Thank you for that.

Interesting tour and relevant information received from our guide. We enjoyed the tour despite cold weather in January.

Great visit, we will come back booking more than 4 hours for this visit. :)
