Every journey begins with a first step ...

The Jerusalem Way is the world's longest pilgrimage and an 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.

Ideally reserve a day to visit Jerash/Ancient City of Gerasa; two days for Amman; a day for Madaba; one day for Jericho and at least three days for Jerusalem! In addition, plan at least half a day for Bethlehem and a few days for the trip to Galilee (Nazareth and Jesus Trail). A total of about 21 days / 3 weeks is ideal.
