Last year we began our season with a pilgrimage – it was a succes so we are planning another one this year!
Saturday 27th of April 2019 10:00- ca. 16:30,
Many has heard about the big holy pilgrimage paths as Santiago De Compostella and of course Rome and Jerusalem. But there was a lot of other places, also in Denmark, where you could make your pilgrimage to.
Some sources talk about a healing spring and churches with relics which could perform miracles.
In our modern world with all its work pressure and stress it has once again become fashion to go on a pilgrimage to clear your mind.
During the weekend we will go on a pilgrimage. The route is not an official pilgrimage, but it will end at Kippinge Church, which is an official pilgrim-stop. Kippinge church is also the inspiration to the church that we a building at The Medieval Centre.
We do this to mark the beginning of our season, but also to make awareness of the fact that movement is healthy and that walking together can be a good event.
During the middle ages people went on pilgrimage to clear their mind and seek peace, it is no different today.
We would like to invite everyone who wants to join in and walk with us. You don’t have to walk the whole distance if you don’t want to.
We will be wearing our medieval clothes to make the experience as authentic as possible but also the test how much wear the shoes will be put through etc.
The tour starts at Krønge kirke at 10:00, we then walk around Maribo Søndersø, past the manor of Engestofte and end at the church in Maribo where the local pilgrimage-priest Anne Louise Hanson will hold a short devotion.
There are bus from Maribo to Krønge afterward to get people back to their car. It is also possible to be picked up at Engestofte manor halfway.
It is possible to buy a small lunch at our lunch stop. Out inn keeper will make a lovely medieval soup with bread for Dkk 30 – bring cash.
It is free of charge to participate – just turn up 🙂
More information will be put on the website when we get closer.
In case the weather is dreadful we might cancel!
