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.

TURKEY / ASIA MINOR (Part V / VII)

The Jerusalem Way through Turkey is scenic, culturally and historically unique! Simply wonderful. On the international Peace and Culture Trail from ISTANBUL to the DARDANELLES (Europe / Asia) and from there on the JERUSALEM WAY through Turkey to ADANA!

 

At the same time, we are now in the largest of the 15 countries on the Jerusalem Way! On this unique pilgrimage we discovered cultural highlights of Asia Minor, the sites where the apostles Paul and Barnabas founded early Christianity and the route of III. Crusade under the Stauffer Emperor Friedrich I "Barbarossa" and thus experience a landscape of incomparable fascination whose people we meet with open warmth.

 

As a special feature, this trip was extended by two days and new hikes were added. This at a special price in 2022!
