Pilgrimage on the way of St. Jakob

five day hike from Goch to Straelen

Viersen

The town of Goch, birthplace of the famous Steyl missionary Arnold Janssen, is the starting point of your multi-day hike.

First you walk along the Jakobsweg 3 along the small river Niers to Weeze. Passing forests and meadows, you reach the castles of Hertefeld and Wissen. Stop for a coffee break at Café Eselsohr and watch the animals in the adjacent zoo. On the nearby nature adventure trail you can forget the stress of everyday life and find yourself.

Continue on to the pilgrimage town of Kevelaer, Germany’s most famous place of pilgrimage to the Virgin Mary. Relax in the St. Jakob brine garden, a place of peace and relaxation. The next morning, your path takes you through the idyllic landscape of the Lower Rhine to the asparagus village of Geldern-Walbeck. On the last day of hiking, you will reach the flower town of Straelen. On the way there, you will walk along the historic Fossa Eugeniana, a canal that was supposed to connect the rivers Rhine and Meuse. End your hike in the historic town centre of Straelen before you start your journey home the next day.

Our Tip:
Pay a visit to the monastery village of Steyl, the life’s work of St. Arnold Janssen, on the last day of your trip. Cycle from Straelen along the Maas and enjoy the view of the picturesque landscape (approx. 50 km).
