The European pilgrimage


Hiking on the VIA NOVA

The European pilgrimage route "Bavaria - Bohemia"

Feel what is essential. Hear when the inner voice speaks to us. See how nature expands our horizons. Go part of the way. Alone or together. On its length of 320 km it leads from Bogen / Ndb. to St. Wolfgang / Upper Austria. Another 250 km lead on a separate branch from Vilshofen / Danube through the Bavarian Forest and Bohemia to the holy mountain in Pribram / Czech Republic. Seekers of meaning have been making a pilgrimage since September 2010 through the scenic beauties of Tittling and Witzmannsberg. Quiet places - whether on the Blümersberg or in the Ilztal - invite you to pause and meditate, breathe new spirit, enjoy the beauty and diversity of God's creation with all your senses.

Pilgrim passes and maps are available from the tourist information in the town hall.

VIA NOVA circular hiking trail

A hike through the Dreiburgenland

Total length: 25 kilometers | Difference in altitude: 600 meters | Walking time: 6-7 hours

The VIA NOVA circular route connects the two routes of the European pilgrimage route leading from Fürstenstein to Perlesreut. You can get on at any point along the route and follow the signs “VIA NOVA” and “VIA NOVA Rundweg”.

This description describes the course of the route via Neukirchen v. W. and Tittling. It starts at the town hall in Fürstenstein, where you can park for free.

From Fürstenstein town hall, walk north to the roundabout. There the route of the VIA NOVA coming from Vilshofen splits.
You go in an easterly direction over the Bahnhofstrasse to the Drosselweg. Passing quarries you come to Oberpolling. The route to Unterpolling leads past St. Hartmann's Church. Up through the Kronenwald it goes towards Kapfham. Above the village you have a magnificent view of Fürstenstein, Tittling, Neukirchen vorm Wald and the Bavarian Forest chain from Rachel over the Lusen to the Dreisessel and Hochficht.
Continue on the old road via Pilling to Neukirchen vorm Wald. Past "Heaven and Hell", the gate to the parish church, via Friebersdorf and Weiding to the church "St. Koloman".

Here you leave the main route of the VIA NOVA and follow the signs for the circular route. The path leads straight to Roitham. There you use the "Donau-Ilz-Radweg" to the alarm center in Tittling. Then continue on Muggenthalerstrasse and Carossastrasse to Blümersberg. Here you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view and find your inner center in the labyrinth.

The circular route meets the northern variant of the VIA NOVA at Blümersberg. You go down to the market square of Tittling and from there over a staircase to the "Donau-Ilz-Radweg". Follow this to the Heyco company and the former Englburg railway station. Here we recommend making a 200 m detour to the 1000-year-old linden tree.

It continues up to Englburger Castle, then through the castle forest steeply down to Dobl. The path leads past the village chapel, lovingly restored by the owner of the castle, and the unique interdenominational chapel, past the meditation stones by Salzburg artist Niki Pfeiffer to the Kollnbergmühle.
From here the strenuous ascent over 140 meters in altitude to the Fürstensteiner Schlossberg begins.
Once at the top, take the first of the three Fürstensteiner stairs to the “Hühnerberg”, the reconstructed, time-honored pilgrimage route to the “Black Madonna” from Fürstenstein back to the starting point at the town hall in Fürstenstein.
