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!
 
The 9th edition the Lightfoot Guide will let you complete the journey your way.
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.
