A contemporary pilgrimage

Walk of Wisdom is a pilgrimage of about a week with mobile devices switched off as much as possible. The rite is independent of a religion and rooted in the idea that we are all part of the same planet and the same life.

Our vision is one signposted Walk of Wisdom in every country of the world – then to connect them. It might take a while. We made the first step with a pioneer trail of 136 kilometres around Nijmegen. Sign up as pilgrim? Click here.
