About Us

At the Brenner Pass: Pilgrims crossing the border between Austria and Italy.
Participants from 15 countries walked 4,000 km from Norway to Rome and from Rome to S. Maria di Leuca in 2015. Our pilgrim walks continue in Norway, Germany and Italy in 2016.

Our goal is to build friendship, engage in dialogue and cross borders literally and metaphorically. Our walks will always symbolize diversity and solidarity, and we welcome participants with different backgrounds and religious denominations to walk together.  Cultural events will be organized along the way.

Pilgrims Crossing Borders is a collaborative project made possible thanks to efforts and contributions from the following pilgrim associations and institutions:

The Pilgrim Confraternity of St. Olav, Norway
The Confraternity of St. James, Norway
The Confraternity of St. Hallvard, Oslo
Nordjysk Pilgrimsforening, Denmark
Hauptkirche St. Jacobi, Hamburg
• The Via Romea Stadensis, Germany
The Via Romea Germanica, Italy
Jakobsgemeinschaft Tirol, Austria
Gruppo dei 12, Italy
Club Alpino Italiano
Trondheim Local Authority
The National Pilgrim Centre in Norway
The regional pilgrim centres in Norway

We welcome posts and photos from the walks on our blog and Facebook page.
