Martin Luther's Birth House (German: Martin Luthers Geburtshaus) is a museum in Eisleben, Germany. Unfortunately the actual house in which Luther was born no longer exists, it having been burnt completely to the ground in 1689.
The German religious reformer Martin Luther was born there in 1483. Opened to the public in 1693, it is a World Heritage Site. In 2005-2007 an expansion was added for visitors (project: Springer Architekten, Berlin); the ensemble has since received five architectural awards.
