In just a few months the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Thesis will be celebrated in Wittenberg, Germany. This event was the spark that ignited the Reformation Movement.
On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther posted his 95 Thesis to the doors of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. The original wooden doors were destroyed over 250 years ago by fire. The current doors are made of bronze and have hung there since 1858.

The panorama shows Wittenberg at the time of Martin Luther. The painting is almost four stories high and covers more than 1,000 square meters. It was really an amazing experience to see this. It is not only a painting, but a multimedia experience with sound and light. It is amazing to see things change in the painting as the lighting changes between night and day.
I am sure that there will be a lot more people visiting Wittenberg this year, but it will be a trip worth making.
