The Walk of Wisdom is a modern pilgrimage route of 136 kilometers around Nijmegen. The route has been awarded, but is experienced as very quiet, away from mass tourism. Pilgrims decide for themselves how they want to make their journey.

The route is inspired by the idea that we are all part of the same planet. The big plan is one Walk of Wisdom in every country in the world – and then to connect them. It might be a little too ambitious! (more).
