The city of Eisleben, located at the Eastern Harz Foreland, is one of the oldest cities between the Harz and the river Elbe. Here the most famous German Reformer, Dr. Martin Luther, was born and Eisleben is the city where he died, too. However, the city is not only characterized by the heritage of the Reformation, but also by copper slate mining, being started around 1200 in the Mansfelder Land. Today, the small city is a cultural center with two modern museums, lovingly restored churches and a comfortable city center with bistros and small shops. Another sight worth mentioning is the theatre of Eisleben, called “Kulturwerk Mansfeld-Südharz”, where plays for the young and the elderly are performed.
