18.02.2015 The Luthergarten grows - New location: Luthergarten New Town Hall


Luthergarten with both locations in the ramparts of Wittenberg


When the first trees in the Luthergarten were adopted Nov. 1, 2009, by representatives of churches, it was not yet clear what significance this Reformation project would have. To date, representatives from 80 countries and many denominations have been welcomed. Besides Lutherans, also Methodists, Anglicans, Mennonites, Catholics, Orthodox, Presbyterian and Reformed have participated in the project. Together, they give a living testimony to the reconciled community in which churches live today.

“500 Years of Reformation  - 500 trees in Wittenberg " - this is an ambitious goal! To reach that goal, the Luthergarten has to be growing continuously. So far, the first Luthergarten site (Luthergarten Andreasbreite) has 292 trees.  All these trees already have been assigned to sponsors.

We are pleased that the Luthergarten continues to grow. A second site is therefore being developed - the Luthergarten at the New Town Hall. This location, too, is in the green belt where ramparts once encircled the town of Wittenberg. There, not far from the Town and Castle churches, another 106 trees have been planted. Therefore, participation by churches in this ecumenical Reformation project is still possible.
