Manarola by Night

In partnership with Ostdeutsche Sparkassenstiftung (East German Savings Bank Foundation) and Sparkasse Leipzig, we restored two of Castle Hartenfels' notable architectural features: the Grosse Wendelstein (1533-37) and the Schöner Erker (1543-44), pictured here. The Schöner Erker (“beautiful oriel”) is a two-story oriel with eight windows, framed in intricately carved sandstone, and also richly decorated.

View of the altar at Castle Hartenfels. In the 1500s, the town of Torgau was the political center of the Reformation, and the castle a historic participant in Europe’s religious schism. It was here that the first Protestant church in Europe was built. Martin Luther personally consecrated the castle church in 1544.
