The neighborhood that surrounds Luther Seminary is called St. Anthony Park, a residential community situated within the heart of the Twin Cities. St. Anthony Park is home to neighborhood shops that include Micawber's Bookstore, Muffuletta Café, Dunn Bros Coffee, Finnish Bistro and the Bibelot Shop.

Attending Luther Seminary, however, does not limit you to a small-town atmosphere. The great thing about Luther Seminary is that you are minutes away from downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. The Twin Cities are wonderful communities in which to live, work, learn and play. There are also plenty of options for shopping, hotels and restaurants in nearby Roseville. 

Whether you looking for a small-town neighborhood feel, or craving a big city experience, Luther Seminary gives you access to both. 

What are the Twin Cities? 

  • the term "Twin Cities" is a nickname given to Minneapolis and St. Paul?
  • Saint Paul is the state capitol, but Minneapolis is larger?
  • the downtowns of these cities are a mere 9 miles apart and share the same airport?
  • the Twin Cities is one of the largest metro areas in the country?
  • the Twin Cities have earned top rankings on the national level when it comes to livability, being bike- and runner-friendly, local music scene, finding a job and cleanliness.
