Distance Travelled

Approximately 14 km (8½ miles)


I said good bye to Sister Lourdes, Mariana and Leo, then visited Schönstatt’s famous Urheiligtum chapel. I then headed eastwards up the hill, visiting four replica chapels. Each one looks similar on both the outside and inside to the original chapel.

Headed south-west back towards the Rhein and city of Koblenz, passing through the village of Simmern, to my accommodation near the east bank of the river.
