On the Trail of Strong Women

On the Trail of Strong Women – a pilgrimage for men and women alike

Pilgrims on the route between Erfurt, Arnstadt and Paulinzella are not just following in the footsteps of three important strong women, they also get to experience the local and religious history.

The 50 km route is devoted to the three most important women in the history of the church in Thuringia: St. Elizabeth of Thuringia (1207–1231), patron saint of the sick and the socially disadvantaged; St. Walburga (710–779), a Benedictine nun and patron saint of the plague as she worked as a healer during an outbreak; and St. Paulina (1067–1107), who founded Paulinzella Abbey. This is a pilgrimage that takes in old towns and cities, sleepy villages, churches, abbeys and monasteries with a long history, such as Ichtershausen, where the church of the Cistercian abbey still towers over the village, or Arnstadt, one of Germany's oldest towns. The route also passes Dornheim, home to the church where Johann Sebastian Bach was married, and ends at Paulinzella Abbey. Although its church is now in ruins, it is still one of the most prominent Romanesque buildings in Germany. It is a route where hikers are transformed into pilgrims while following the yellow scallop shell on a blue background. This signpost verifies that "On the Trail of Strong Women" is part of the medieval St. James' Way network from Erfurt to Coburg. It is an extraordinary route that inspires all who take it – and not just strong women – to meditate.

Every year on the third weekend in June, Erfurt brings the Middle Ages back to life in the form of the Merchants' Bridge Festival. 

Craftsmen demonstrate the skills of the past, jesters supply fun and games, minstrels sing and sword fighters do battle. The backdrop for this old town festival, the largest in Thuringia, is not unsurprisingly the Merchants' Bridge, one of Erfurt's must-see landmarks. At the same time as the festival, there is also a thoroughly contemporary fair on the cathedral square.
