Hi Manosge,

You can order the credential here:

Deutsch (german) Tel. +41 (0)76 319 45 66

Französisch (french)
commande de crédentials Tel. +41 (0)22 776 12 08

Alternatively, you can order one from any national organisation, eg CSJ.

Also, check out this website -, it has a lot of useful information, including a very good list with accommodation.

And there isn't a specific pilgrims office in Einsiedeln, but you can go to the office at the monastery (entrance in the courtyard to the right of the main portal). There you have to ring the bell, and one of the padres will give you a stamp. I'm quite sure that they don't sell/ issue credentials.

Please let me know if you need any other info, I grew up just next to Einsiedeln. I'm actually going to walk from Einsiedeln to Geneva this summer as well.
