the Castle Church: North Portal

North Portal

North side of the Late Gothic exterior (completed 1509). The two main entrances are on this side, including the famous doors on which Luther posted his theses, shown here. Back in Luther's day, there was a moat on this side of the church and the portals had to be approached by footbridges over the water.
