- Past OR future Camino
Thank you ms. The thread has some good information in it. It’s a good start to some information.
Thank you. GOS! You’ve sent me some very useful information.Berlin-Santiago in one go was always a dream of mine when I still lived there. Sadly it wasn't possible. Hope to read an account of someone who did do it!
It's a very long trek, so there probably won't be many who do it in one go.
Most Germans walking from home will walk it in parts over several years.
I plan to walk from home in one go next year. Estimated time frame 4,5 month + (I'm slow).
Home -Trier 3 weeks
Trier - Cluny 4 weeks
Cluny - le Puy 2 weeks
Le Puy - St. Jean 4-5 weeks
St Jean - Finisterre 5 weeks.
The part from Berlin would have added another 3-4 weeks (but my preferred route Berlin-Cologne wouldn't have followed the Jakobsweg).
Found this website that shows a possible route from Berlin
Ein privates Langzeitprojekt - Nach 3 Reisen auf den spanischen Jakobswegen und dem Einschnitt 2020 durch Corona möchte ich nun den Ursprünglichen Weg beginnen - also quasi direkt vor der Haustür. In einigen Etappen werde ich mich von Berlin auf den Weg machen, jedes Jahr ca 250 km. Dabei die...www.jakobsweg-berlin-santiago.de
Via imperii and via regia are nice. Depending where you continue from there, you'll have several options.
Brilliant!Seems like a great plan !
This site may give you some idea about the possibilities in Germany:
For the first part, the following route seems to make sense (although it is a bit longer than walking via Frankfurt)
Berlin - Leipzig on the Via Imperii

Leipzig - Eisenach on the Via Regia

Pilgrim infrastructure in Germany is not always so good, but on these routes there are quite a lot of albergues. I have walked from Gorlitz/Leipzig to Marburg (and hope to walk the Via Imperii next year)
When I was walking across Bavaria (in stages), one of my fellow pilgrims was from Paderborn, which is as close to Berlin as I am familiar with.from Berlin to Santiago
