When I was in Wittenberg yesterday I had two pictures on my must take list. One of these was a picture of the doors of the Castle Church. I will use pictures of the doors in future posts, but for tonight will just share some of them with a few comments.
Here is a picture taken from the tower end. You may notice the wording on the band below the crown section. The wording is Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott which is the opening line in German of A Mighty Fortress is our God by Martin Luther.
Here you can see the main doors of the church building. You can also see a smaller door to the right. I used the smaller door to enter the building. Plans are to enter the building through a welcome center on the other side, but it is currently under construction.
There is a lot of construction in Wittenberg as they prepare for the 500th anniversary of what the doors of the church are famous for.
The original wooden doors had been burnt in 1760 during the Pomeranian War.
The other picture that was on my must take list was of something inside the church building. I will share that picture in a later post.
