Description

The idea of pilgrimage, the journey into the "I", is as old as man's desire for purity and health.

Perhaps some concepts have changed over the centuries, the basic idea has remained, is experiencing a renaissance! Thanksgiving for regained health, requests for convalescence, repentance, taking a vow, asking for indulgence - or simply the longing for peace, for peace, for a new finding of meaning - does not all this have today just as, if not even more justification than hundreds of years ago? And even if your motifs are not sensual, if you simply want to wander off for a few days without having to lug your luggage around, because it is brought from quarter to quarter.

Or because you know there's no healthier way to get around than evenly, steadily.

The pulse never overloaded, but the cardiovascular system always stimulated.

So even if your main goal is to spend a healthy holiday far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and to experience some real cultural highlights - then you are "on the right track": from Wörth on the border to Burgenland, continuing to Hungary, up to the Stanglalm.

In two variants, each divided into three daily stages.
