Where can I register for the pilgrimage walk?
Registration for the German part of the walk is possible via the online form below. Please let us know which section you would like to join us on pilgrimage.
Please note that registration for the pilgrimage with overnight stay is possible up to a maximum of 10 days before the start of the stage. After that, registration is only possible on request.
What does a daily routine during the pilgrimage look like?
After a good breakfast and a morning ritual, we leave the accommodation. We set off on the appropriate stage of the day.
The daily activities (devotions, visits, breaks, singing…) depend on the planning by the guide for the corresponding stage. This may vary from day to day. Lunch will tend to be smaller so that hunger is all the greater in the evening.
What fitness level is required for the pilgrimage?
The daily routes are between 10 – 30 kilometres long and vary greatly in their demands (metres in altitude, condition of the paths, …).
Participation in the pilgrimage is the responsibility of each pilgrim in relation to his or her state of health and fitness.
What is the arrangement for overnight stays?
The overnight stays will be at “pilgrim level”. In most cases, these will be youth hostels, monasteries, mass accommodation in church parishes, … and the like. The accommodation depends on the local conditions and the size of the group. This is organised by the local section leaders.
In mass accommodation, at least two different rooms (men and women separately) are offered if possible. However, we cannot always promise this. Where no mass accommodation, youth hostel or similar is possible, cheap rooms in hotels can also be booked. It cannot be assumed that a shower facility will be available every evening/morning.
A sleeping mat/air mattress and a sleeping bag are necessary in the mass accommodation. There are not always enough mattresses available for all participants in the accommodation.
Each participant bears the costs of accommodation on site.
If you are running for several days, we assume that you will use the accommodation organised by us. If this is not the case, you will have to arrange your own accommodation and any necessary transfers to the accommodation yourself.
How is the food regulated?
As a rule, all participants eat together. However, this is not a must and can be arranged individually by everyone. Each participant is responsible for their own meals in consultation with the group. The costs for this are borne by each participant. There will be opportunities to buy food in a supermarket along the way.
A jointly prepared evening meal or a stop at a restaurant will be arranged within the group. Here, too, everyone is responsible for the costs on site.
Is there luggage transport?
For the “”large”” luggage, an escort vehicle will be available from stage location to stage location. However, we cannot guarantee this for the entire route. Please contact the named contact person for more information.
If a vehicle is provided, the costs incurred will be charged to each participant as a lump sum. How much this will be will vary from section to section.
The transport vehicle can only be used by participants as a means of transport for their own person in exceptional cases (e.g. illness).
What costs will be incurred?
There are no costs for the participants for the organisation and registration.
All costs, such as accommodation, food and luggage transport, if applicable, will be borne by all participants on site.
How large will the pilgrim groups be?
It will be very different. Some pilgrims will be with us the whole way or for a few weeks. Others will only accompany the pilgrimage group for one day and thus be a part of the pilgrimage walk.
All are welcome.
Am I insured on the pilgrimage?
Each participant is responsible for damages, accidents and other cases of damage and insures himself/herself against them if necessary. Participation in the pilgrimage is at your own risk.
Do you have more questions?
Then send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will get back to you as soon as possible.
