JORDAN / ISRAEL / PALESTINE
This is the last of a total of seven stages on the world's longest peace and pilgrimage path!
The Jerusalemweg / Jerusalem Way connects 15 countries and the continents of Europe and Asia with the Holy Land over a distance of about 7.500 kilometers: "From the end of the ancient world in Finisterre via the heart of Europe to the beginning in Jerusalem". The route leads from Europe, through a wide variety of countries to the east, towards the sunrise - symbolically of life - we are step by step on the way to the most important pilgrimage site of Christianity and Judaism, holy place for Muslims: Jerusalem - intersection of religions !
JERUSALEM WE ARRIVE! The appropriate introduction to the journey through the Holy Land and the goal of the JERUSALEM WAY!
You will experience the wonderful landscapes of the Holy Land in a balanced and at the same time fascinating combination on foot and by bus. In the spring before Easter we are on our way to Jerusalem, in the most beautiful time when the desert blooms! Jerash, Amman, Madaba, Mount Nebo / Moses, the Dead Sea, the baptismal site on the Jordan, ... are on the program in Jordan, before we hike from Jericho all the way to Jerusalem!
