Leaflet: Jakobusweg Fulda-Schweinfurt, route description and accommodation directory
and hiking map "Naturpark Rhön" (Fritsch Verlag) 1:50,000 ". For foot pilgrims to Würzburg there would be another map "das Schweinfurter Land".
The Way of St. James is marked. For me as a cyclist, the map was very helpful, e.g. with the question: How do I get safely back down to Langenleiten from Kreuzberg by bike?
