If we have not left Austria in the previous stage, we will finally reach the next country on the way to Jerusalem today: HUNGARY!


The border comes to Halbturn about 4 km. As mentioned, there is a small village with a restaurant, sleeping facilities and a church immediately after the border crossing. It is lovely and quiet there, you can really say that Hungary receives the Jerusalem pilgrim in a friendly way, right from the first step.


In this sense: Ultreia on the way to Budapest! The end of the stage today is in Jánossomorja, so in German Saint Johann, we feel right at home again. ;-) There is a church, restaurants, shops, ATM and also rooms for sleeping in this small town.
