Pilgrim Route "VIA ROMEA" - Route of Encounters

Abbot Albert from Stade left detailled directions in his travel notes of the "Stader Itinerar" from his journey to Rome in 1236. Nowadays,this historic route is known as the VIA ROMEA and its route leads through our local area. Abbot Albert crossed the wide course of the Danube in the trading town of Donauwörth. The VIA ROMEA leads from Stade (on the North Sea coast) to Rome, passing four German federal states, as well as Austria and Italy. Therefore, it does not only connect places, regions, languages and dialects, but also tribes, culinary and culture.
As today's "route of encounters", this Rome- pilgrim route seeks to actuate people in ecumenical openness to overcome boundaries and to render them receptive to spiritual and humane encounters. The VIA ROMEA connects people who share a common European history and reveals the religious and cultural aspects of these old itineraries and trading routes.
