Every journey begins with a first step ...

The Jerusalem Way is the world's longest pilgrimage and international peace and culture route!

The Jerusalem Way connects religions and peoples in a unique peace project.

The Jerusalem Way stands for mutual recognition and tolerance.

Love, the most powerful force in the universe, penetrates, illuminates everything and builds bridges between all people!

 

Pilgrims create openness to encounters, dismantle prejudices and fears and strengthen trust - basic trust! The supposed boundaries between peoples and religions can be bridged by individuals with love and mutual respect.

This goes wonderfully with the international peace path JERUSALEM WAY. In the end, different religions and cultures are united by a common goal. The holy city of Jerusalem is the intersection of world religions and the bridge to heavenly Jerusalem. In each of us, in our hearts.

Press release: >>> Jerusalem Way is international understanding in practice <<

 


Writer Paulo Coelho is enthusiastic about the Jerusalem Way peace project!

(June 30, 2013) The Jerusalem pilgrims and the literary star met in a small Spanish village. What an incredible, wonderful coincidence: the Way of St. James meets the Way of Jerusalem! Coelho was enthusiastic and recognized the dimension of the Jerusalem Way as an international peace project. In Jerusalem, the city of peace, there is no peace! So every single pilgrim makes an important contribution to peace in the Holy Land and at the same time Jerusalem is the Gordian knot for peace in the world. Because what separates religions and peoples we can reunite people in love.

 


Audience with Pope Benedict XVI

David Zwilling, Otto Klär and Johannes Aschauer received the book "On the Jerusalem Path: From the Heart of Europe on foot to Jerusalem" in the presence of Cardinal Schönborn to Pope Benedict as part of the papal general audience in Rome today, Wednesday 25 January 2012 XVI. presented and presented the Jerusalem Way.

 

For the three Jerusalem pilgrims, after their 6-month pilgrimage and the arrival after about 4.500 km on foot on Christmas Eve 2010 in Bethlehem, this is another very special and extraordinary highlight of their life and pilgrimage! Especially also because their “pilgrimage connecting peoples” followed the traces of the apostle Paul on the one hand and on the other hand stood under the motto “JOY - PEACE - FREEDOM”.
