In summer 2004, the European pilgrimage route "Via Nova" has been newly created. The route follows the old pilgrimage routes and connects St. Wolfgang in Austria, the Czech Příbram and various places in Eastern Bavaria. On the Bavarian side, the pilgrimage route was continued in a 162 km stretch from Straubing via the nodal point Schierling in direction to Kelheim.
A section takes you along the valley of the Great Laaber. For example, hiker move to Schierling above Atting, Rain, Schönach, Mötzing, Sünching, Aufhausen and Pfakofen and further in the district of Kelheim.
A folding walking map and hiking proposals for the various sections of the pilgrimage route Via Nova are available for free at the county office Regensburg and the communities involved.
