Naumburg has almost 1,000 years of history and is also part of the history of the Reformation and Martin Luther.
The Gothic cathedral with late Romanesque features is today one of the most important monuments of the High Middle Ages and also belongs as one of the major sights on the 'Omani Route'. 'Uta von Naumburg' is one of the twelve statues in the cathedral and this exceptional stone sculpture from the 13th century is probably one of the most famous Gothic works of art in Germany.
It was in Naumburg Cathedral that Luther stayed in 1521, on his way to the Diet in Worms, and it was also in Naumburg Cathedral that the first Protestant bishop was consecrated in 1542 by none other than Martin Luther, who was also a good friend of the newly consecrated bishop Nikolaus von Amsdorf.
