Wasserentnahmestellen entlang des Jakobsweges Weinviertel

Leer gewordene Trinkflaschen lassen sich bei den Trinkbrunnen entlang des Jakobsweges wieder schnell mit frischem Wasser auffüllen.

As a pilgrim, you should not underestimate the strain walking on foot puts on your body. Providing your system with a sufficient amount of liquid is essential for your physical well being. You should drink more than your natural feeling of thirst tells you to. An old mountain climbers' rule states: "Drink like a calf (a lot!) and walk like an ox (slowly, especially downhill - your knees will  thank you!) - this will take you far and you will stay healthy!"

Filing drinking bottles

A number of drinking fountains along the Way of St. James in the Weinviertel region allow one to refill empty drinking bottles.
