Germany offers a variety of different pilgrims routes. I can also recommend the Luther Trail through central Germany: "Martin Luther´s journey to and from Worms in 1521 and its effect and impact upon the Reformation were the starting point in developing the Luther Trail as a pilgrimage route and reflective walking path in conjunction with the Reformation Jubilee in 2017." The total distance is 360 kilometers and the trail is very well marked both ways. You'll find accommodation quite easily, but I recommend to plan ahead.

Thought I add this one to the list as well. The Lutherweg in Sachsen, Sachsen Anhalt and Thuringen which sort of connects relevant places related to Luther and the Reformation. You can do it as a circular walk, in total it is app. 300 km I guess. I remember seeing it its signage when walking the Via Regia, and now stumbled upon this site while planning a next walk.

This is the link: http://www.lutherweg.de/

Are there many or any Albergue type places in Germany?

As for Germany, you won't find Albergue type places along the Camino. In rare cases, the Parish might help, but I wouldn't count on that. The diverse St. James organizations (www.deutsche-jakobus-gesellschaft.de) along the route might help with a list of accommodation, sometimes you might even find a private room. - But again: Nothing to count on. I'ld recommend to plan ahead. - You'll not find an infrastructure like in Southern France or Spain along the Camino or other pilgrims trails as this requires a much higher frequency than we have in Germany (or other European countries, except for Spain and Southern France). You will also very rarely meet other pilgrims.

In general there are not as many albergues as in Spain. The exception is probably the Via Regia. I walked this route (from Gorlitz to Eisenach) and easily managed to stay in an albergue every night. You do have to phone beforehand to inform about your arrival, so you can be given the key - the albergues are mostly run by local volunteers and do not have a permanent hospitalero. On the Via Regia you are also more likely to meet some other pilgrims.
