Description

Jakobsweg Tirol-AllgäuThis very attractive alpine Jakobsweg route, both scenically and culturally, leads off the main roads over three Alpine passes, namely the Fernpass, the old Gaichtpass and the Jochpass.

It crosses some of the most attractive hiking and holiday areas in Tyrol and southern Upper Allgäu on ancient Roman, trade and pilgrimage routes, and Jakobs pilgrims can undoubtedly look forward to a particularly impressive route.

All the more so since this mostly leads through rural and tranquil mountain regions, where people have been deeply influenced for centuries by faith and fear of the forces of nature.

Therefore, these regions are particularly rich in churches and chapels with numerous art historical jewels, often from very different epochs.

In connection with the magnificent panoramic views, the constantly changing perspectives and the meditative, sometimes nevertheless strenuous hiking through these alpine natural landscapes, this "camino" becomes an unforgettable path that demands all the senses, rich in intensive experiences, encounters, experiences and perhaps also new insights about oneself.Integration into the Jakobsweg network of Austria and GermanyThe Jakobsweg Tirol-Allgäu in Stams connects to the German-Austrian Jakobsweg from Munich along the Isar, Loisach, Leutascher Ache and Inn rivers as well as to the two Austrian Jakobsweg that unite in Innsbruck: the route from Lofer/Salzburg to Innsbruck and the route from Lienz to Innsbruck.

From Innsbruck this bundled Jakobsweg stream continues via Stams to the Arlberg or from Stams to the route Tirol-Allgäu.

Pilgrim's stamp and pilgrim's identity cardIn the Jakobskapellen and the churches mentioned in the text there are stamp places along the Jakobsweg.

These pilgrim stamps are beautiful memories in your own pilgrim diary.

In the intrnat.

recognized pilgrim identity card they serve as proof for the mastered route.

As an official document, the pilgrim's identity card also makes it possible to stay overnight in special pilgrim accommodation, of which there is still little on this route.

Directions: The Jakobsweg Tirol-Allgäu is divided into daily stages here, but each pilgrim should put together his own individual route.

One stage may be longer, the other shorter, depending on your wishes, physical condition and cultural or tourist interests.

Adventurous pilgrims set off on their way and simply spend the night where they arrive in the late afternoon, at the risk that they may not get a cheap room for the night anymore, but have to pay more in a hotel.

Others plan their own route with overnight stays already at home.

If, for example, you want to visit the basilica and monastery in Stams as well as the pilgrimage site of Maria Locherboden high above Mötz in peace and quiet, you should arrive the day before in good time.

Or plan an overnight stay in Obsteig or Holzleiten.

Also at the end of the route in Oberstaufen-Zell it would be worthwhile to hang another day.

Then you could hike from Oberstaufen- Zell to Oberstaufen, get on the bus to the Hochgratbahn at the station and drive up to the mountain station in the late afternoon.

Only a few metres below is the Staufner Haus, an alpine club hut in a splendid panoramic location with good cuisine and inexpensive accommodation.

The next day, one could walk directly from the hut over the Nagelfluh chain with a view to Lake Constance, the next destination on the long way to Spain, before one takes the bus from Steibis to the railway station in Oberstaufen for the journey home.

All the more so since this mostly leads through rural and tranquil mountain regions, where people have been deeply influenced for centuries by faith and fear of the forces of nature.

Therefore, these regions are particularly rich in churches and chapels with numerous art historical jewels, often from very different epochs.

In combination with the magnificent panoramic views, the constantly changing perspectives and the meditative, occasionally strenuous hiking in wind and weather through these alpine natural landscapes, this "camino" becomes an unforgettable path that takes all the senses, rich in intense experiences, encounters, experiences - and perhaps also new insights about yourself.

In Stams, the Tyrol-Allgäu Way of St James links up with the German-Austrian Way of St James from Munich along the Isar, Loisach, Leutascher Ache and Inn rivers, as well as with the two Austrian Way of St James that unite in Innsbruck: the route from Lofer/Salzburg to Innsbruck and the route from Lienz to Innsbruck.

From Innsbruck, this bundled Tyrolean Jakobsweg stream continues via Stams to the Arlberg or from Stams to the Tirol-Allgäu route.

In the chapels of St.

James and the churches indicated in the text, there are places of stamping along the Way of St James.

These pilgrim stamps are beautiful memories in your own pilgrim diary.

In the internationally recognised pilgrim's pass, they serve as proof of the route mastered.

As an official document, the pilgrim's identity card also makes it possible to stay overnight in special pilgrim accommodation, of which there is still little on this route.

The author's tip: The indicated walking times (without breaks) are generously calculated and serve as a guideline.

Group size, cultural and photo stops etc.

influence the time required.Safety information: It should be noted that there may be an increased risk of accidents and injuries on pilgrim paths.

Despite careful route planning, a basic risk always remains.

Tour preparation through endurance sports, appropriate technical training and mental preparation reduces the risk of accidents and risks.

Equipment: Personal pilgrim equipment must be safe, usable and in accordance with the relevant technical standards.

The rucksack should not exceed the weight of 15 kg.

Every pilgrim is recommended to obtain detailed information and to prepare himself in specialist literature or on the Internet.

Mountain bikers and cyclists with robust touring bikes, appropriate condition and equipment will be thrilled by this route.

Exception: The first stage from Mötz through the gorge to the Mieminger Plateau must be avoided - best on the little-used direct road from Mötz to Finsterfiecht/Obsteig, west of the Jakobsweg route.

The old long-distance pass route is technically difficult in the upper section, especially in wet conditions (pushing section).

For the descent from Oberjoch to Bad Oberdorf/Bad Hindelang it is best to use the pass road from the St.

Jakob Chapel.

The lake shore path at the Großer Alpsee near Immenstadt-Bühl is closed to cyclists.

Parallel to the hiking trail, the cycle path leads along a quiet little road behind the railway tracks.
