OUR MISSION

The “Accueil Pèlerin” was founded by Pilgrims and is now still operated by Pilgrims. It has the ambition to create an atmosphere were pilgrims can share their experiences and life-stories and can recover for the long journey ahead to Santiago de Compostela or Rome. One of the unique elements is the joint cooking and eating. Generally vegetarian meals are prepared with fresh ingredients from our own biological gardens. The large garden with scenic views and the yoga and meditation room given ample space to relax and in case of bad weather there is a large living room with fireplace to warm-up after a day of traveling. Camping is possible when required. At the Le Coeur du Chemin Dutch, French, German and English is spoken.
