the church in Möhra

The district Möhra, first documented in 1257, shows especially beautiful and lovingly refurbished timbered houses. Möhra was the hometown of Martin Luther’s ancestors, and here he was living in 1521, just before his „abduction“ to the Wartburg. The Lutherstammhaus (Luther’s family home), the Luther church, the Luther monument and the exhibition in the Luther-rooms all remind of the life story of the great Reformer. The Luther Trail leads from Möhra to the Wartburg in Eisenach, respectively to the Glasbachgrund near Steinbach, where Luther’s sham abduction took place.
