In 2004, Norbert Schöbel and his partner Thorsten Baensch started walking from their adopted home in Brussels to Munich, the city of Norbert’s birth. This was the first big step on a Grand Tour of more than 3000 km tracing a circle across Europe in 155 days over 12 years and 7 months. Hamburg, where Thorsten grew up, was also part of the trip as well as Berlin, Prague and many other cities, towns and villages. They walked through seven countries: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
For this massive publication I am creating 155 detailed maps showing every step of this Grand Tour. The maps are printed in four colours: black, light blue, warm red and yellow. The book is expected to be released in the Spring of 2021.
