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.

Evenemang
 Erfurt's Christmas Market is one of the loveliest in the whole of Germany and is the largest in Thuringia.

Erfurt’s medieval old town centred on Domplatz (Cathedral Square) is the perfect setting for the specially atmospheric time of Advent.
You will find traditionally crafts and Thuringian specialities and also an enormous Christmas tree decorated with candles, a crib scene and hand-carved, almost life-size figures. There are also plenty of showman-like traders.

A varied events programme is on offer especially on the Advent weekends.
