Reformation in the Neckar Valley
Since the 500th anniversary year of the Reformation, Burg Guttenberg and Bad Wimpfen show the networking of the Protestant focal points in the Neckar valley and Kraichgau in joint offers.
An important key figure is Erhard Schnepf. After this Protestant preacher and later reformer of Württemberg was expelled from Weinsberg, he found protection at Guttenberg Castle and was employed there as a pastor in 1522. Shortly afterwards he received a sermon in the free imperial city of Wimpfen, where he had been preaching the Reformation since 1524.
During Erhard Schnepf’s stay at Guttenberg Castle and in the Imperial City, numerous important papers and treatises from his early period as a reformer were written, which were to influence later generations. Gutenberg Castle is therefore often referred to as the “Wartburg of Southern Germany”, where – like Luther once did – his companion and many other reformers of Southern Germany were able to escape persecution by the Catholic authorities.
There are several ways to follow the footsteps of that time and to relive the beginning of the Reformation in the Neckar valley:
“500 Years of Reformation in the Neckar Valley”
In cooperation with the city of Bad Wimpfen we offer the package “500 years of the Reformation in the Neckar valley”.
