Boring was yesterday: “Luther’s Workshop” offers four great programs for all ages, which you can book with us! Use the booking form below on this page. Information can be found here:
01 | The Printing Press
Luther’s Reformation wouldn’t have been possible without the printing press. How did master print-ers work in those days? You’ll learn the secrets of this old trade and print a page of the Luther Bible yourself on our Gutenberg-printing press. Afterward, you’ll color your print yourself just like medieval manuscript illuminators.
02 | Writing with Pen and Ink
How did people write in the Middle Ages? We’ll show you in Luther’s Workshop! Learn more about old scripts and typefaces and discover Luther’s favorite typeface, “Schwabacher”. Then, you’ll get creative with pen and ink: You’ll be able to collect your work in a special folder from the museum and take it home with you.
03 | School in Luther’s Day
Experience a school lesson in Luther’s day! What did school students learn over 500 years ago? Find out: The “Herr Magister” will teach you himself in our historic classroom. This entertaining glimpse of everyday school life in the waning Middle Ages is great fun for school students and grownups.
04 | Worksheets
Do you want to explore the Lutherhaus on your own? Great idea! Our exploration worksheets with three difficulty levels will help you. The Lutherhaus Owl will guide you through the museum and ask tricky questions. Download the worksheets here and bring a printed copy with you. You may also purchase them at the admissions counter for fifty cents apiece.
