Day 1: Frankfurt Airport (or Main Station)- Nuremberg. By High speed Rail (ICE) you will go from Frankfurt or Frankfurt Airport directly to Nuremberg. Your charming hotel is located in the Old Town - right across from Nuremberg Main Station. The Nuremberg Reformation history shows that Martin Luther’s ideas found fertile soil here. Motivated by a great majority of the citizens, the Nuernberg Council decided as early as 1525, after the “Colloquy” to reform the city. It made Nuernberg one of the first cities to make this change without an Iconoclasm. Nuremberg today, is a sizable modern city and the center of a European metropolitan region, yet the charm of the Middle Age village and its treasures remains.
Day 2: Coburg. After breakfast you will take a day trip by rail to Coburg. The picturesque Center of Coburg offers a journey through time and a look into the history of the city. The Middle Age “Münzmeisterhaus” finds itself among significant Renaissance and Baroque buildings like the Castle Ehrenburg. The Veste Coburg castle became a witness to Luther’s accomplishments, as he translated the “Old Testament” while here. The Luther Chapel and the so called “Luther Apartment” in the Art collection in the Veste Coburg, afford an intimate look into his life and workings. Luther preached in the Moriz Church.
