Here is a video from Rick Steves blog post from our shoot in Rothenburg, Germany. It’s park of a new, 1-hour Rick Steves PBS special on Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation.
After Martin Luther died in 1546, Europe was plunged into 30 years of war, leaving a third of the continent dead. Like it or not, it’s part of the story of the reformation.
Rick includes the medieval time-capsule town of Rothenburg prominently in his guidebook, so the town was gracious enough to call out an army of 50 stunningly clad reenactors. It was fun!
