Reformation 2017 Gets 28-Meter-Tall Welcome Tower
With its slogan "Gates of Freedom," the 2017 World Reformation Exhibition will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation from May 20 to September 10, 2017. For the event, NUSSLI is constructing a 28-meter-tall Welcome Tower shaped like the Luther Bible.
Upon arrival at the Wittenberg train station, visitors to the 2017 World Reformation Exhibition will pass through the event's "Welcome" tower. The 28-meter-tall, 17-meter-wide and 7-meter deep scaffold tower shaped like the Luther Bible will be the tallest structure featured at the World Reformation Exhibition. The tower's observation platform will be accessible to visitors via an elevator and two staircases, each with 160 steps. From atop the platform, visitors will be greeted with a spectacular view of Wittenberg's steeples and of the entire exhibition.
Apart from the tower, NUSSLI will also realize two stages for the mass celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation to be held on May 28th on the Elbwiesen. Assembly work on the stages is set to begin shortly.
