Pilgrimage from Salzburg to Tyrol

From landmark to landmark on the Jakobsweg (St James Way) you make your way through the Alpine foothills to the Bavarian Ripertiwinkel. From Salzburg to the province of Tyrol, the eight-day pilgrimage takes you over dreamlike paths past impressive landscapes, picturesque chapels and imposing churches.

The daily stages are usually about 5 hours, over about 15 to 20 kilometres. You start at the dreamy Trumer lakes, continue to the border to Germany, past gorges and waterfalls.
