Guided tour to book

Ausschnitt aus dem Holzschnitt Martin Luthers aus der Cranach Werkstatt
During the tour through the exhibition, the guided tour traces the Reformation heritage in the valuable cultural-historical collections such as the Cabinet of Artefacts and Natural Curiosities and the Library Hall Kulisse. Innovations in the educational system, the institutionalisation of the Social Welfare Fürsoge and the founding of the world's first Bible Institute in 1710 at the Hallesche Orphanage make the Francke Foundations a lively place for the completion of Martin Luther's Reformation.
