Far from the tourist centres, experience some of the most worthwhile stops on the Luther Trail...
After visiting the ruins of the Nimbschen monastery, you may find it hard to imagine that Katharina von Bora once wanted to leave this idyllic place. After twelve years in the convent, the nun fled via Torgau to Wittenberg, where she married Martin Luther in 1525.
