Last week, I walked a very small part of the Camino in Rothenberg ob der Taube in central Germany. Unfortunately, all I could get were photos because I couldn't figure out where to get a credenza. Any idea where to get a credenza in Germany? No one along the trail had any idea what I was talking about, including reps from the local tourist bureau :wink:

Hi there, FooteK. You might like to contact http://www.deutsche-jakobswege.de/index.html and ask about a Pilgerpass specific to Rothenburg ob T. Alternately a Pilgerpass can be obtained online from Der Jakobusfreunde, Paderborn.

It's quite possible to get Pilgerstempeln; I was able to get stamps at almost every lodging, and the big-city churches, and a few small-town churches dedicated to pilgrim saints (Jakobus, Roch) while walking from Prague to Nurmberg in 2012. I used the American pilgrim credential. The best time to collect a stamp is when your host is collecting your money: sometimes that is in the evening upon arrival, occasionally in the morning upon departure. If your German fails ("Gibt es ein Pilgerstempel, bitte?") then charades seem to work fine.
