So let’s go to the little town of Eisleben and visit his birthhouse and the church St. Peter & Paul Baptism Center in which he was baptized. This place is also a center for baptism with interesting features.

Back on the road we stop for a picnic in the woods, where the Memorial Thunder and Lightning marks the place at which in 1505 Luther got into a thunderstorm, was almost hit by lightning and swore that if only he would survive the storm, he would become a monk.
