Schloss Torgau

Lutheran: Torgau

The beauty and elegance of the Renaissance period are never better showcased than in Torgau, with its towering Schloss Hartenfels and the castle chapel – the very first Lutheran church. This is where the rebel priest gained sanctuary, invited by Castle Lord Friedrich the Wise, and his successor, Johann Friedrich the Magnanimous, putting Torgau at the political centre of the Reformation. Venture into streets and alleyways, back to times of yore and encounter clusters of magnificent Renaissance buildings; seemingly all striving to be the brightest architectural star.
