Pilgrimage Overview

Join us on a Pilgrimage to Eastern Europe & Berlin with Reverend Andres Ligot!

Depart USA

Our spiritual pilgrimage begins as we board our transatlantic flight to Berlin, with meals and beverages served aloft.

Arrive Berlin

After arrival in Berlin, we are met by our representative and transferred to our hotel.


After an early breakfast head out on a beautiful sightseeing tour of Berlin. Your morning sightseeing tour features views of the impressive Reichstag and lovely Schloss Charlottenburg. Continue through the city to see famous sights such as Bellevue Castle, Brandenberg Gate, Gendarmen Market, Alexanderplatz, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and more. The afternoon is free to explore this once divided city on your own. This evening enjoy dinner and overnight in Berlin.


Today we depart Berlin and on our way to Prague we stop in Dresden, one of Germany’s most beautiful cities. Among the sights are the Zwinger Palace, with its outstanding collection of early European art, the Cathedral of Our Lady, the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, the Semper Opera, and the Brühl Terraces. We then continue to Prague for dinner and overnight.


Depart Prague this morning and take a scenic ride through the countryside to Cesky Krumlov and enjoy a walking tour of this beautiful Renaissance town. Then continue our drive into Austria until reaching the imperial city of Vienna for dinner and overnight.


A wealth of treasures awaits us in Vienna – one of Europe’s most dynamic cities. Our tour of Vienna includes visits to the Town Hall, the State Opera House, Belvedere Palace which is the former residence of the Prince of Savoy, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, St. Charles Church, Hofburg Palace, and the Kaisergruft. The highlight of the tour is a visit to the magnificent Schoenbrunn Palace with its 1,400 elaborately decorated rooms and gardens.

Melk / Vienna

Early this morning we visit the Melk Abbey, one of the most imposing architectural masterpieces north of the Alps and a focal point in the formative years of Austria’s history. 1989 was the 900th anniversary of the day on which Melk was given over to Benedictine monks. Immediately following our visit to the Melk Abbey, we enjoy a cozy passage on board ship in the Wachau region, which was included in the UNESCO world heritage list for its exceptional beauty. Among the highlights are the Melk Abbey, the Schönbühel Castle, and the town of Dürnstein with its blue tower. The cozy board restaurant serves local specialties, such as apricot dumplings, and excellent wines from the Wachau to round off the trip on the waves of the Danube. We end our cruise in Krems, we then return to Vienna for an evening at leisure.


Depart this morning from the Golden City of Prague to Krakow. On the way we stop in Velehrad to visit the Shrine in memory of the two missionaries from Byzantium, “Cyril and Methodius”, who brought Christianity to the Czech lands. In 1985 His Holiness Pope John Paul II conferred the “Golden Rose” on Velehrad, a Papal distinction conveyed to only three other venerable places of pilgrimage, Lourdes, Guadalupe and Czestochowa. We then continue to Krakow for dinner and overnight.


This morning we drive to Wieliczka to see the oldest salt mine in Europe, a world-class tourist attraction. Itis a unique place where many generations of Polish miners have created a world of underground salt lakes with a rich interior of decorated chapels including the famous Blessed Kings Chapel, plus other galleries and workings made of salt. Wieliczka salt mine is listed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site. Then proceed to Wadowice, birthplace of Karol Wojtla, the late Pope John Paul II. His museum is in his family house. Continue to a place that was a popular pilgrimage place for the Pope when he was a young man Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, where in the 17th century the Palatine of Krakow founded a Franciscan Monastery. The church has very rich Baroque decorations. On the slope of the hill and in the valley is an architectural ‘Way of the Cross’ comprising 42 Mannerist and Baroque chapels and some small Calvary churches.

DAY 10

Following breakfast, proceed to Wawel Hill and celebrate mass at the Church of St. Stanislaw, Poland’s second most important pilgrimage shrine. Visit Krakow’s cathedral which serves as the nation’s spiritual capital and has witnessed most of the royal coronations and funerals of the last millennium. See the Cathedral’s Treasury and continue to Krakow’s Old Town to see Kanonicza Street where Pope John Paul II resided while living in Krakow. Visit the courtyard of the Collegium Mauis; see the ancient Market Square and Cloth Hall. This afternoon, stop at Lagwienikitovisit St. Faustina Shrine before returning to Krakow.

DAY 11
Depart to Warsaw

Depart Krakow and drive to Auschwitz for a guided tour of the infamous death camp where millions were killed during World War II. Continue to Czestochowa, a city which has been for the last 600 years the principal center of the Catholic religion in Poland and is a shrine for pilgrims. Visit Jasna Gora Monastery with religious, historic, and artistic value, and participate in the unveiling of the Black Madonna. Our guide will show us the Gothic Chapel of Our Lady in which hangs the famous Black Madonna icon on a magnificent silver and ebony altar. Tour the treasury and celebrate mass at the Shrine. We then proceed to Warsaw for dinner and overnight.

DAY 12

We begin with morning mass at St. Stanislaw Kostka Church, where martyred Solidarity priest Father Popieluszko worked and is buried. Visit the bustling Old Town Square, where horse-drawn carriages carry visitors past beautifully rebuilt Baroque houses and Renaissance-style storefronts. Traditional Polish cafes and shops surround the square, which has been restored to its 13th-century charm. Stroll the streets of this historic area, which is mostly closed to traffic, and explore its beautiful churches and castle. See the birthplace of Madame Curie, Chopin’s monument, and the Royal Castle (exterior view) which was the residence of Polish Kings.
