    How about some pilgrim feeling? On this hike from Hornbach Monastery to Medelsheim, you follow the southern route of the Jakobsweg through the Saarland for almost 15 kilometers - it doesn't always have to be the great pilgrimage to Spain. To get in the right mood for the tour, you can draw peace and strength in the Hornbach Monastery, the starting point of the hike.In a relaxed up and down you run through open fields, sometimes through a shady section of forest. You usually have a beautiful view of the Saarland and can leave everyday stress behind - just as it should be for pilgrims. The entire southern route of the Jakobsweg through the Saarland is 64 kilometers long.You walk through Böckweiler, where you can take a look at the small Stephanuskirche. Then the path rises slightly and continues along the edge of the forest. On the way you have a wonderful view of the French Lorraine. Once you have arrived in Medelsheim, you can stop at the Weber restaurant to end your mini-pilgrimage.You can get back to Hornbach from Medelsheim by bus. To do this, first take line 237 to Blieskastel and then change to line 236 towards Zweibrücken.
