Eisleben is the city where Luther was born and where he died. In between he lived elsewhere in Germany. An important religious figure, leader of the Reformation in his country, he stood against the Catholic church and translated the Bible into his language. In Eisleben one can see his statue in the central Market Square and visit some other important sites connected with Luther.
In the nearby Mansfeld, there is an interesting Schloss or Palace which has been turned into a youth hostel. The view from there is marvelous and the garden is very quiet and peaceful.
