The north celebrates 500 years reformation! Even though Martin Luther never stayed in the north his new ideas developed a special dynamic in this area. Nearly all regions in the north as well as around the Baltic Sea joined to the reformation. The biggest territory of Lutheran community occurred. The exhibition “Luther´s North” gives an impression of ways, persons and significant station of propagation and strengthening of the new faith: in Denmark, in Schleswig-Holstein, in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and it show which political and social changes the reformation brought along.
Every year with the beginning of May the cultural festival "Nordischer Klang" transforms the city of Greifswald into a smörgåsbord for North European events. Music, literature, exhibitions and films invite the visitors to a cultural journey from Reykjavík to Helsinki.
