Let them discover their German Heritage

Erntedankfest (Thanksgiving) in Homberg/ Efze

5.5 million Germans left their home between 1815 and 1914 to find a better life somewhere else in the world. North America, Australia, Argentina, South Africa and many other countries saw German immigrants which often had a big influence into the development of the new settlements. How much German is in your family or your church's history?


Terra Lu Travel is specialised in setting up customized tours for groups. Whether it's a 4-person family or a tour bus full of travellers: Terra Lu will meet you at the airport and care about all land arrangements. Our drivers will explore the smallest villages to take you to the sources. Experienced since 1990 we are the experts for church travel in "Terra Lutherana", Luther's land.


Terra Lu Travel can arrange family or church trips to the original places ancestors came from. Journeying in search for your family roots can add new life to the marriage records, obituary records, and family lore you've learned about while researching your family history. Prussia and Silesia, Brandenburg or Baden - whether the towns and villages are today in Germany or maybe Poland, the Czech Republic or Scandinavia: send us a list of the places, and we'll put together a very private family roots tour.

Terra Lu Travel is owned by Rev. Christian Utpatel, a Lutheran pastor who did a lot of heritage researches for groups from North America, Australia, and even Germany. In fact most of "regular tourist tours" touch a little heritage travel since families find their roots along the road. Terra Lu tours always are individually designed to the specific wishes of the groups.
