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.


The Jerusalem Way is the world's longest pilgrimage route and international peace route and cultural route! The route runs from the end of Europe in Finisterre to the beginning in Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Way brings together different religions, nations and cultures in an extraordinary peace project and stands for mutual recognition, tolerance and appreciation of the different ways of life.


We are on the road together, step by step we make a pilgrimage towards Jerusalem and at the same time make a contribution to gentle and sustainable tourism. But pilgrimage is not only trendy, it connects, teaches us to overcome boundaries, strengthen trust and is a lasting balance for body, mind and soul!


Changes are possible due to Corona, but we look ahead with confidence and look forward to hiking together with you! The following pilgrimages and events are planned.

Together on the longest path of peace in the world for Ukraine & peace in the world.

A shorter participation, e.g. Linz - Mauthausen - Grein - Nadlingerhof, or Wachau or elsewhere is possible! It would be important if many people are there, even if it is only for 1 day or a few hours! EVERY KM WALKED COUNTS AND BENEFITS UKRAINE.

In particular, the start in Linz is historically very significant, the first steps lead us from the main square over the Nibelungen Bridge / Danube. The entire route on the Jerusalemweg from Linz to Heldenplatz in Vienna 250 km (11 days).

This means that a pilgrim walks the entire route, for example, and collects an average of 25 euros per day. If you can't go, you have the option of donating from home to support the campaign with 50 cents per KM. This results in a maximum donation of 125 euros. Thanks in advance!

Fri 23 Sept - Fri 07 Oct 2022


For the guided pilgrimages, the 15 countries were divided into seven individual travel sections that can be booked independently of one another. The most beautiful stages of the path have been selected and will be guided by us in cooperation with local tour guides.

In a balanced combination of walking (10 - 15 km / max. 20 km per day) and bus, there is a unique opportunity to personally experience all the highlights of the entire route from Spain to the Holy Land. The path leads the participants in an easterly direction towards the sunrise – symbolically of life – while step by step they find themselves on the way to the most important pilgrimage site in Christianity: Jerusalem – the intersection of religions! link Photo album trip autumn 2019


As a special feature, the trip Turkey / Asia Minor has been extended by two days and new hikes have been added. This at a special price in 2022!


Travel program, details and booking see the menu "Pilgrimage Turkey"


If you book by March 31, 2022, there is a € 25 early bird bonus! TIP: In order to get cheap air fares, we recommend registering for the trip as soon as possible. Price with Turkish Airlines for a return flight from Vienna totals around EUR 220 (as of February 2022). 



After several years of intensive development, the complete JERUSALEM WAY route is available on GPS (about 7500 kilometers).

Thanks to the feedback from several pilgrims who, despite Corona, are traveling in different countries along the JERUSALEM WAY, we were able to fine-tune the GPS route again. Since 2022, several POI / sights and tips for accommodation have been integrated directly into the app. Info route and GPS app


Many thanks to all pilgrims for your support, together we are establishing the longest pilgrimage and peace path in the world.
