From Luthergrund, this section of the Luther Trail takes you along the Rennsteig Trail through Brotterode to Schmalkalden with its Luther house and St George’s Church where Luther once preached. In the former vestment chamber above the vestry (today known as the ‘Lutherstube’), Martin Luther is said to have kept warm during the morning service when he stayed in Schmalkalden in February 1537. Today the room features pictures of plants on the ceiling and houses a small church museum.
