Background of the Walk of Wisdom

More and more people are asking themselves classic life questions on ancient pilgrimage routes such as the Camino to Santiago de Compostela or the Henro in Japan. For example, the number of pilgrims to Santiago grew from 2,491 in 1984 to 438,323 in 2022. Pilgrims praise the connectedness of being on the road. Differences between people disappear and walking for days on end connects you with your body and nature.

Inspired by this development, the Walk of Wisdom was created. A new pilgrimage route, independent of any religion. We want to make space for reflection and connection across the boundaries of culture and country.
