Pilgrim stations, pilgrim’s way-posts, and the stone ritual

On the Lucerne Route of the Way of St. James, we come across some pilgrim stations, pilgrim’s way-posts and instructions for the stone ritual, mounted over 10 years ago in the course of a project for the promotion of the Way of St. James. Regretfully, some of them have been damaged or removed by vandals. In our route description, we point to those that still exist.

Important pointer: 

The brief route descriptions have been edited and checked in voluntary work by helpers and association members after inspecting the routes and based on the situation as encountered. The accuracy of the contents, and in particular the conformity with the official Way of St. James way-posting cannot be guaranteed by the association “” and the authors, also in the sense of a product liability. Pilgrims are therefore asked in any case to follow the official “Jakobsweg” way-posts, and to advise us of possible errors. Thank you!
