Follow the LUF Mobil on the Way of St. James

The high-tech wheelchair on the Way of St. James

Three people from Austria, three motives: A pilgrim with a handicap wants to set out on the Way of St. James, an inventor wants to put his all-electric high-tech wheelchair through its paces, and an artist wants to realize an art project. And so the three men set off with three other companions and the high-tech vehicle on the way to Santiago de Compostela.

The tour will take place from 13.05.2021 to 15.06.2021. Below you will find updated information about the tour:

Tour Overview

33rd day of the 5-week tour on the Jakobsweg (Way of St. James).
The early bird catches the worm! After we got up very early today, we drove with the LUF Mobil to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.
In addition to testing the night driving capability (lighting and headlights) of the LUF Mobil, we took the opportunity to take great pictures of the LUF Mobil in front of the cathedral.
The lighting conditions for photos were perfect - it paid off to get up early ­čÖé
