In Germany, there are several St James societies that are responsible for certain sections of the Way. On the route from Leipzig to Constance, I travelled along such sections of the Way of St James.

Via Regia , Ecumenical pilgrimage from Görlitz on the Polish border via Leipzig to Vacha.

from east to west

Görlitz - Leipzig

Leipzig – Merseburg –Freyburg – Naumburg – Eckartsberga - Erfurt - Gotha – Eisenach – Vacha

The Via Regia leads through the town centre of Vacha and continues south through Sünna, Buttlar and Hünfeld to Fulda. The ecumenical pilgrimage route ends in Vacha, but the signposting continues to Bremen in the Rhön. There the Rhön Jacob's Way connects, reaching Fulda and from there leads on to Würzburg.
