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.

Joint pilgrimages on the Jerusalem Way

On the Jerusalemweg through all of Switzerland plus Vorarlberg

 

Together on the longest pilgrimage in the world and at the same time an international peace and cultural route!

 

We make a pilgrimage towards Jerusalem through Switzerland & Vorarlberg and thus also make a contribution to tourism and the hospitality industry. Pilgrimage is trendy and is also a sustainable compensation! We are on foot and by minibus from the France / Geneva border through all of Switzerland to the Arlberg!

Note: Please take your sleeping bag / hut sleeping bag with you on this trip! As a special feature, we have planned a night of "sleeping in the straw". This special accommodation of a monastery on a farm is very popular with pilgrims in Switzerland (Details / photos). If desired, instead of sleeping in the straw, it is also possible to sleep close to the room in the monastery. Please inform us of this before the trip.
