Doors in Wittenberg

While I was in Wittenberg, Germany last month I took quite a few pictures of doors as I walked through the town. I will share some of them tonight. There were some very interesting doors.

Door in wittenberg, german door, green door, architectureI really like this door. Of course it being green is a bonus since it is my favorite color. You can also see the wear and tear on the door and it is fun to imagine how the door is usually opened.

Perhaps an armful of packages resting against the door while getting keys out and unlocking the door. The owner may also have a bike that is used to push open the door after it is unlocked.

Wittenberg, Germany, doors, Old doors, dilapadated doorHere is another set of well worn doors. I like the pattern on the doors. What also caught my eye was the building on each side of the entry way. One side looks like it previously had wiring running up it, and the other has the remains of a wiring system.

Old German Door, Wittenberg, Germany, DoorwayThis doorway looks very old, but it has a modern door handle. The stone around the door is very interesting and looks like it has been repaired a few times over the centuries.

Tower Door, Castle Church, Wittenberg Lutherstadt, Germany, doorsThis door is on the same building as the most famous doors in Wittenberg. This door is at the base of the Castle Church tower. It looks like a very secure door, which is important as the church was part of a fortress.

Castle Church Wittenberg, Martin Luther, 95 theses, church doors, Mighty FortressHere are the most famous doors in Wittenberg. These doors are the Theses Doors and stand where Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses almost 500 years ago. The original doors were wooden and were destroyed in a fire.

You can learn more about these doors in my post Castle Church Doors.

I hope you like this collection of doors. If I receive enough visits to this post I may write another post about Wittenberg doors. I have quite a few more pictures of doors from Wittenberg.
