Feeder route: Jerusalem route of the monasteries

This feeder route traces the era of denominational and political religious boundaries and reconciliation: It begins at the southern end point of the “Green Band”, the former border and death strip of the division of Germany. From there it leads past important baroque churches such as the Kappl and the Waldsassen monastery - past the JERUSALEMWEG dove of peace - and then meets the other two feeder routes in Passau (Way of Kings / Way of the Apostles).


The whole route Volkenroda - Waldsassen - Passau is about 600 km. The Waldsassen monastery is exactly halfway, from there to Passau it is almost 300 km. The city of Waldsassen and the monastery of Waldsassen are partners of the Jerusalemweg. See also directions and accommodation on our partner site VIA PORTA
