The pilgrim’s path along Europe


An ancient Christian tradition is being revived

All over Europe, people can become more and more enthusiastic about the tradition of pilgrimage. In a world of constant acceleration, people all over Europe are looking for contemplative slowness in the tradition of pilgrimage.

Not to be confused with Via Francigena, the Via Romea pilgrim’s path is now a hiking trail that Abbot Albert von Stade made in 1236 on a pilgrimage to the pope in Rome. With the help of his travel records, a detailed description of the path could be reconstructed for future generations.

In our region UP IN THE HARZ, the pilgrim’s path leads from Wernigerode via Elbingerode and Königshütte to Hasselfelde and Stiege.
