Martin Luther room at Wartburg Castle

Lutherstube signThe Lutherstube, or Luther Room, is one of Wartburg Castle's most popular attractions. Martin Luther stayed in this room (and the sleeping room behind it) for 300 days in 1521-1522.

Although the walls are original, the desk and chair are replacements from the Luther family's furniture collection: The desk and chair that Martin Luther used while translating the New Testament into German and writing polemics at Wartburg Castle were carted away over the centuries, one sliver at a time, by religious pilgrims.
