Luther Trail in Erfurt
As pilgrims’ route and hiking trail the Luther Trail in Thuringia leads to more than 30 Thuringian locations associated with the life and works of the reformer, Martin Luther, and his comrades-in-arms.The trail is indicated across Germany with “Luther-L”, which points out the route.
Erfurt lies in the middle of the Thuringian Luther Trail. From here one can take four different routes retracing Luther’s footsteps. The 60 kilometre long Erfurt part of the Thuringian Luther Trail goes from the old city to the Erfurt city limits in four looping paths. The Luther Trail has no direct route through the old city itself because of the numerous historical Lutheran sites.
