Walking in the footsteps of faith: The Wallfahrerweg, or pilgrimage trail, takes you to impressive testimonies of the Christian faith in the Altmühltal Nature Park. Under the care of the bishop's staff, spirituality and a gentle natural landscape are brought together here. Along the way you will find beautiful places of pilgrimage and convincing expressions of faith. You can also enjoy the unique natural landscape of the Altmühl-Jura region. Mighty limestone cliffs, wildly romantic river valleys, sunny plateaus, shady forests and picturesque slopes make the walk on the Wallfahrerweg a relaxing tour of reflection. The churches provide a resting point on the route, while you can gain energy in the cozy restaurants in the historic villages and towns.
In about 130 kilometres, the Wallfahrerweg connects Breitenbrunn on the eastern side of the nature park with Wemding in the west. Sacred high buildings such as the Eichstätter Dom or the Plankstetten monastery, chapels and waypoints surround you.
