4 – 6 October 2019 – 475th Anniversary of Torgau Castle Church

Parish Fair – City Festival – Museum Night

Ever since 2017, guests have been invited to join in the celebrations on the first weekend of October to mark Martin Luther’s consecration of the castle chapel in Torgau as the first Protestant church.

The people of Torgau have organised a city festival from 4 to 6 October with a fun fair and vibrant market activities to celebrate the 475th anniversary of the castle church.

Impressive illuminations in and around the castle church attracted lots of visitors to the festival in October 2017 (artist Ingo Bracke) and 2018 (artist Jürgen Meier). In 2019, the illuminations will also be displayed along the streets of the old town. Torgau will shine!
