The 15 stop-off points along the trail provide an incentive to pause and meditate as well as an opportunity to rest and recharge your batteries. Information boards provide plenty of food for thought and enable you to plan your journey. The trail extends over a distance of around 87 kilometres and can be completed in several daily stages.
The stop-off points along the Meditation Trail form the following suggested stages:
1 Wieskirche - 2 Rottenbuch Abbey - 10.5 kilometres
2 Rottenbuch Abbey - 3 Soier Lake - 10.1 kilometres
