“In the Footsteps of Martin Luther and the Reformation 2017″— May 9-17, 2017
“Wendish Territory” Pre-Tour Option — May 5-9, 2017
Next year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, a most appropriate time for a trip to Germany to visit the places of importance in the life and ministry of Martin Luther. With great joy I announce the tour noted above! Terry and I are pleased to be your on-site hosts for both the basic tour and the pre-tour option described below.
The tour is hosted by Lutheran Foundation of Texas (LFOT), with travel, lodging and local tour arrangements by Educational Opportunities Tours (EO).
- LFOT is a Lutheran Christian organization devoted to helping Christian people create a legacy for family and faith based endeavors with assets the Lord has entrusted to their care.
- EO is a Christian tour company with whom Terry and I have traveled a number of times. They do an excellent job of handling the many details associated with a trip of this nature.
Historic towns on the basic Reformation tour itinerary include Berlin, Wittenberg, Halle, Eisleben, Erfurt, Eisenach, Worms, Heidelberg, and Mainz, returning home from Frankfurt. The basic tour price of $3,448 includes international airfare from New York, with other U.S. cities of departure also available. Early registration discounts are noted in the brochure.
The Pre-Tour option is a four day visit to the ancestral land of those from Wendish heritage. Towns on this itinerary include Dresden, Bautzen, Klitten, Weigersdorf, Hoyerswerda, Schleife, Spreewitz, Raddusch, Cottbus and Lubbenau. Those who choose this $1,098 option will depart the U.S. on May 5 and connect on May 10 with the Reformation tour in Berlin.
