Together, Protestants and Catholics present communal sites along a route that divines the future message of the Christian faith and tries to encourage loving actions carried out for others in the name of God and with love for oneself. With exhibitions, tours and individual walks, the Luther Mile vibrantly demonstrates city history, church history and faith. The Luther Mile is part of the Luther Trail that leads through Erfurt.

Author’s recommendation

Every summer, open air plays are put on in the Barfüßer Church as part of the 'Neues Schauspiel Erfurt' festival.
