A Surprise Celebration in Wittenberg, Germany

I grew up about 5 miles from the Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. Thus, I had always wanted to visit Wittenberg, Germany. So, Samantha and I decided we would visit and have what we anticipated would be a low-key evening in a quiet town.  Instead, there were an estimated 100,000 people there to celebrate Martin Luther's wedding (in 1525). (Probably explains why we had such a hard time finding a parking spot.) We managed to find the "Schloss (Castle) Church" where Luther tacked his 95 Theses to the door.
