Birds chirping, the rustle of the wind between the canopy of the trees, and the crisp air that invites you to take deep breaths greet cyclists in the Hainholz in Pritzwalk.
The way to the venerable place of pilgrimage, Alt Krüssow, leads you past romantic little village churches. The impressive single naved, late Gothic church in the middle of the village can be seen from afar. After a visit to the convent Kloster Stift zum Heiligengrabe and its church (that's very popular among pilgrims) with the “Paradieshimmel” (paradise sky), the route leads you further to the half-timbered church in Bölzke where it is located right by the village green. An informative exhibition explains the phenomenon of pilgrimage. Then, the tour comes to an end in Pritzwalk.
