Walking from Amsterdam to the Balkans

A long long walk through the fields and the woods, over the hills, bigger hills and then via the Alps to the Dinarides. I started in Amsterdam where I followed the Pilgrims route to ‘s-Hertogenbosch and further south to Limburg and Belgium. In Liege I hopped on the GR 57 (Vallée de l”Ourthe et Sentier du Nord) all the way to Luxembourg. After that I had improvise a bit. I tried to connect different European hiking trails, Pilgrims routes, nature paths and other regional trails to find my way through Germany. Towards the Bodensee. From there on it’s serious stuff. Via Alpina Red Trailfollow stuff. After the Alps comes the… Dinaric Alps. In Slovenia, Croatia and BiH I hiked my version of the Via Dinarica Green Trail. Here are all the day stages of my walk from Amsterdam to Sarajevo.
