The Luther-city Wittenberg, I've got 95 Theses...

Wittenberg, officially Lutherstadt Wittenberg, is a city in Germany in the Bundesland Saxony-Anhalt, on the river Elbe. It has a population of about 50,000. The importance of Wittenberg historically was due to its seat of the Elector of Saxony and to its close connection with Martin Luther and the dawn of the Protestant Reformation; several of its buildings are associated with the events of this time. Part of the Augustinian monastery in which Luther dwelt, first as a monk and later as owner with his wife and family, is preserved and considered to be the world's premier museum dedicated to Luther. Various Luther and Melanchthon memorial sites were added to the UNESCO world heritage list in 1996.
So sayeth wikipedia..

The Stadtkirche (Town and Parish Church of St. Mary's) is the civic church of Wittenberg. The reformer Luther preached there and the building also saw the first celebration of the mass in German rather than Latin and the first ever distribution of the bread and wine to the congregation - it is thus considered the mother-church of the Protestant Reformation. Since 1996 it has been a World Heritage Site.
This is not the church with the 95 Theses.
