Every journey begins with a first step ...

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

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

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 Trail through the Balkans is UNIQUE culturally and scenically: Fascinating landscape from the Danube to the Aegean!

Beautiful river valleys, paths of the apostle Paul, traces of Mother Teresa, lonely Danube meadows, historical theaters of war, romantic wine regions, traces of III. Crusade (Emperor Barbarossa), hike on Via Egnatia, important historical and cultural sites, encounters with Catholic, Orthodox and Muslim culture, exploring the oldest churches in Europe, wandering through ancient areas, beautiful olive groves, ... and finally the colorful sea, the Aegean .
