Euro Trivia Quiz #10 - Martin Luther in Germany

Jump to last reply

Two questions in today's Euro Trivia Quiz - both involving Martin Luther:

1- Luther took the alias Junker Jorg (the Knight George) and went into hiding in this castle in this town. the castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site - on my tour their we saw the small chamber he stayed in and the ink stains allegedly from his ink pot he flung at the Devil when he appeared to him in the room. (Could well be apocryphal, I don't know).

Name the castle and town it is in.

2- This former East German town has many associations with Luther who apocryphally for sure (those many believe it to be fact) was said to nailed his demands to the church door.

Name this town as it was called in Luther's day and what the town is titled now.

No cheating - winner gets 10 Deutsche marks!
