AugustinusWeg – find the treasures of your life

Since May 2007 the AugustinusWeg is located in the Messelhausen district, the seat of the Augustinian Order Monastery.

The project of the AugsutinusWeg team was to connect everyone living in the surrounding counselling and caregiving units and those living in the guest house, in the sense of the order's founder St. Augustine.
The first path section is accompanied by the words which St. Augustine wrote down in his famous "Confessions" and which can be translated into your own life. These words are shown in greater context and made clear by brief suggestions or thoughts.

Between Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Freudenberg am Main the path links the cultural and landscape highlights of the region in one exciting tour. In five suggested daily stages it goes through “the valley of the mills”, “to castles, forests and wine”, “to Bocksbeutel wine and Madonna’s” and “terraces in mottled sandstone”, “to picturesque fortress ruins that line the Main”.

James' Path (Jakosbwanderweg)

“The journey is the destination” – that’s the motto of the St. James pilgrims. Walking the St. James’ hiking path Odenwald-Main-Tauber Valley you’ll not only get closer to the grave of St. James in Santiago de Compostela, but you will also reach the real goal of introspection and self-discovery. Over 170 kilometres you will walk from Miltenberg to Rothenburg ob der Tauber over nine leisurely daily stages. Artistic portrayals of St. James in various forms are waiting to be discovered in gorgeous churches and in Rothenburg ob der Tauber the path meets the Franconian- Swabian James’ Pilgrimage Path so you can continue your tour…
