back to oberammergau

Western Tyrol

The Way of St James has many strands en route to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. The Austrian route is called the Jacobsweg and passes through Salzburg and the Tyrol. We have selected hotels close to the path, and are developing an itinerary with a pilgrimage theme.

We offer a one week holiday with a choice of three hotels with a two night stay in Oberammergau at the end.  Our selected hotels are situated in picturesque countryside about an hour’s drive from Salzburg, which you will visit. The Heigenhauser and Alpenland hotels are in village settings, and Gasthof Bad Hochmoos is in the countryside, a ten minute walk to the village of St Martin.

Our week will have a pilgrimage theme including a visit to Maria Kirchental, also known as Pinzgau cathedral, in a spectacular mountain setting and a walk on the Jacobsweg along the shore of Lake Pillersee. Your holiday price includes a programme of excursions and a top grade Passion Play ticket.

All of the holidays in this brochure are escorted group holidays. One, or sometimes two airports have been allocated to each departure date.  Check our website, or call the McCabe office to find a group travelling from your area.

Organising a Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage is ALL we do and in 2013 we celebrated our thirtieth year in business – so we must be doing something right! We work with all denominations and are happy to tailor every pilgrimage to the needs of each particular church. For instance, some parties would plan one or two Eucharists during their pilgrimage but others will choose a daily celebration. In the Holy Land, your focus may be the Galilean ministry or a re-creation of Holy Week in Jerusalem. You tell us what your particular interest is and we will recommend an itinerary
