German Wandergesellen are journeyman craftsmen who have been undertaking the same rite of passage for the last 800 years. Having completed an apprenticeship, young men and women set out on foot with just a couple of coins in their pocket and a few bundled belongings. They travel as far as their craft might take them but cannot come within 50 km of home, until their Walz of 3 years and a day is over and they return as guildsmen and women.
A surviving medieval tradition in modern Germany, the Wanderschaft has many handed down secret rituals and rules. Dressed always with the traditional corduroy suit and a black hat, only walking or hitchhiking, the Wandergesellen live a free and vagabond life.
