World Reformation Exhibition


The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) opened its contribution to the World Reformation Exhibition in Wittenberg punctually on 20 May. In the Heaven’s Tent, the LWF member churches and partners from all over the world will present themselves and their work until the exhibition closes on 10 September 2017. A total of fifteen hosts will give an international atmosphere to the city.

Heaven’s Tent is centrally located in the Andreasbreite section of the Luthergarten. The living Reformation monument invites us to stroll through the park and discover the trees that have been planted by churches from 91 countries worldwide on the occasion of the Reformation anniversary. Luthergarten Andreasbreite is directly opposite the “Altstadt” train station and 200 meters south of Castle Church. The garden is open round the clock and the Heaven’s Tent can be visited daily (except Tuesdays) from 9:45 to 18:00.
