The "Overath Pilgrim’s Trail"

Seven steps on the way to Marialinden

For almost 300 years, people have embarked on the pilgrimage from Overath along a seven-station Way of the Cross to Marialinden. The boards along this new loop hiking trail tell the history/histories behind this tradition. Hikers are accompanied on a journey through time to the 18th century and learn so many interesting facts about the lives of the people at that time.
