The Holy Way (German: Heilige Weg) came about as a result of the canonization of Bishop Benno of Meissen. It led from Bohemia to Meissen and ran between Grillenburg and Wilsdruff in the present-day district of Sächsische Schweiz-Osterzgebirge in the opposite direction and parallel with the Saxon St. James’ Way (Sächsischen Jakobsweg). Original sections of the route have survived, for example in the Tharandt Forest between Grillenburg and Spechtshausen.
