Pilgrim Trails

Traditional routes, impressive church buildings and the tranquility of nature refresh body and mind on pilgrimage routes. In the European Alps, there is a multitude of pilgrimage routes of very different importance. Several branches of the famous Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) to Santiago de Compostela run through the Alpine countries.

But there are also lesser-known ones such as the Benedict Pilgrimage Trail through the nature park of the Ammergau Alps, which partly runs along the old Via Romea. An ancient pilgrimage and trade route that leads from Trondheim and Oslo via Innsbruck and Bolzano to Rome.

And there is a superlative: the Via Alpina Sacra – it leads across the entire Alpine arc from Aquileia to Cannes. These transalpine 4,300 kilometers can best be realized in a multi-year project divided into individual annual stages, during which we reach the largest, most beautiful, oldest, most interesting and highest pilgrimage sites, churches, monasteries, and sanctuaries of the entire European Alps.

As a mindful person with depth and extensive personal experience of life and faith, I would also accompany you on pilgrimages in a supportive and sensitive manner. Here it is no different than with the sabbatical or long-distance hiking offer: Beyond our introductory conversation, we want to have already been on tour together before we set out on a pilgrimage.
