Credentials in Germany

Where in Germany can I get my Credentials/Pilgrim Passport? I am an American citizen, but I live in Germany. I live near Kaiserslautern: are there any offices related to Santiago de Compostela near there? I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!

Credentials

Hello Brian,
Most pilgrims obtain a pilgrim passport through the Confraternity in their country. Perhaps you could join the American Pilgrims - or the Confraternity of St James - or even one of the French Associations?
I do not know of anywhere in Germany that you can get the credential.
Here is a list of their websites:

USA: American Pilgrims on the Camino: ttp://www.americanpilgrims.com/
Canada: The Little Company of Pilgrims: http://www.santiago.ca/
Dutch: http://home.wanadoo.nl/petermkuiper/camino/
England: Confraternity of St James: http://www.csj.org.uk
France: Société des Amis de Saint Jacques de Compostelle: http://www.compostelle.asso.fr/
German: Pilgern Auf Dem Jakobsweg http://www.pilgern.ch/

Good luck.

Sil
