    LENGTH 21.2 km; ASCENT 549 m; DESCENT 439 m; DIFFICULTY medium; TIME 6:42 h
    Since the 15th century, large groups of pilgrims have been seeking fourteen saints every year to request the protection of the fourteen holy helpers. The pilgrim embarks on a spiritual “journey”. It is an individual as well as a common form of spiritual being on the road - connected with various challenges, but also rich moments. The way (inwards) is just as important as the goal to reach the place of grace Fourteen Saints: "Come closer, here is sacred ground". The way to the Fourteen Saints is also a picture for our whole life, which we can walk in faith, hope and love - together or alone, in joy or in suffering - towards the goal of a permanent home.
    12 wooden sculptures by international artists line the 21 km long pilgrimage route from Seßlach to Vierzehnheiligen. The starting point of the pilgrimage route is the picturesque Seßlach, which is also known as the "Upper Franconian Rothenburg". After a short walk through the winding streets, past the parish church of St. Johannes, you leave the town through the eastern town gate and walk through the rolling hills, slightly downhill into the Itztal, past small idyllic villages. After about 10 km you can make a small detour to the idyllic Großheirath. Beautifully preserved half-timbered houses await the pilgrim here. From the valley of the Itz you first climb over a slight mountain range. From there you have a wonderful view over the Main valley and its surrounding towns and villages. The last section of the path leads past the former Benedictine Abbey of Banz Abbey high up on the Banzberg - the pilgrimage basilica Vierzehnheiligen.

    Sculpture S01: Resting, Source [A staged construction site - a sign of life - a playground - an assembled coexistence in rest.]Sculpture S02: Departure [A figure of childlike joy about the departure, almost a dance of euphoria, it starts.]Sculpture S03: Carrying the cross [Filigree and old masterly, the artist critically examines the idea of pilgrimage.]Sculpture S04: Freedom [Freedom is a matter of seconds as soon as you set your first foot. The knight frees herself from a black weight.]Sculpture S05: Music, Vitality [Playing until you drop, and no matter how heavy the load, the vitality of the music is palpable.]Sculpture S06: Pulling in the stragglers, waiting for each other [This interesting figure was created with enormous dynamism. The first slider is none other than Johannes, the Baptist, with book and lamb, who pulls in stragglers and is a source of strength and inspiration.]Sculpture S07: Experience healing [The sculpture stretches up like a flaming flame that promises healing and cleaning. Salvation can be found in heaven.]Sculpture S08: Help, stand up for others [help your neighbor, take care of sore feet, relieve pain, heart and hand and action alive.]Sculpture S09: New Look [The beauty of nature is elegantly defined by the double-leaf flame.]Sculpture S10: John the Baptist [The square pillar in the center hides the actual baptism scene. The shiny tin inlays symbolize the flowing water.]Sculpture S11: Grasping a Heart [A standing knee to ask for blessings, as support for the storms inside and outside the heart.]Sculpture S12: Serenity [Faith moves mountains - a symbol, a metaphor for a positive attitude, to be able to bear and bear everything.]

    Not as many photos today as usual, since we experienced heavy rains on the first third of the route and had to deal with torrential floods on the forest paths. Despite rain protection, clothes and shoes were soaked. When we reached the goal of the hike, we were dry again due to the now bright sun.

    It is not pleasant if you get so wet on such a long hike! And then floods on the forest paths 🙁 and wet feet ... That must have been really hard.

    @Doris: It really was! Really crude. But in the community (we were out with friends) you just keep walking. Maybe we would have turned back alone ...
