Luther Museum in the Wittenberg

The Geelvinck Salon has found a new home in the building, which since June 2019, houses the Luther Museum, also known as the Wittenberg. This name is a reference to the city where Luther once made his theses known. The building, which dates from 1772, is located in the Plantagebuurt between Weesperstraat and Roetersstraat on the corner where Nieuwe Kerkstraat and Nieuwe Keizersgracht meet. The address of the Luther Museum and the church hall is Nieuwe Keizersgracht 570.

Music in Museums: the Geelvinck Salon in the Luther Museum

In the beautiful church hall, filled with streaming natural light thanks to windows on both sides, will soon sit a completely restored organ. The Streicher grand piano will also be located here and the Geelvinck Salon can continue its series of chamber music on Sunday afternoons under the motto “Music in Musea: the Geelvinck Salon in the Luther Museum.”

The Luther Museum, which will also occupy the church hall in addition to the beautiful Regentenkamer, houses the collection of valuables of the Lutheran Congregation, such as the Baptism of the Kamerling by Ruysdael.

The proceeds from the short stay are intended for the works of the Diaconie, the care for the poor, the elderly, undocumented refugees and members of the LGBTQI
