"Routes to Cranach"
The reason for this thematic year, which follows the traces of the painter family Cranach, is the 500th birthday of Lucas Cranach the Younger. His father, Lucas Cranach the Elder, was not only a prominent painter of the German Renaissance, but also a close friend of Marthin Luther. At the Castle Road the cities of Kronach, Nuremberg and Coburg are closely interweaved with his biography. More about the year of Cranach
