Over the next two years, 2016 and 2017, German institutions will dedicate focused attention on the 500th commemoration of Martin Luther’s legacy and the centuries-long cultural impacts of the Protestant Reformation. The major centers of historical significance – such as Wittenberg, Erfurt, Torgau, the Wartburg Castle – have already completed site renovations and special exhibits fully one year in advance of the overwhelming number of visitors anticipated, beginning in summer 2016.
