The Albergue „Casa Paderborn” in Pamplona

Dear pilgrim friends,
there’s not much to explain about the situation we’re in now.
The Camino and all its hostels are closed and will remain so for an uncertain time. The facilitated mobility makes it all the more necessary for us today to limit ourselves in order to avoid greater evils.
Let us together help to ensure that the Covid 19 curve does not continue to rise and that we can be on the Camino again.
Our hostel Casa Paderborn is closed since 13.March 2020 and will remain so until at least the end of April. On 23.March 2020 it was handed over to the city of Pamplona to serve as an emergency accommodation.
We hope to be welcoming pilgrims again from March 2021 onwards.

The „Casa Paderborn“ is a municipal Albergue. Since 2006 it is a joint project run by the city of Pamplona and the Saint James Society of its German partner city, Paderborn.

After crossing the ancient St.Magdalena bridge you turn to the left and after 1/4 mile you find the Albergue in a traditional house, typical for this region. It is situated in a park on the banks of the river „Arga”, only 600-700 m from the Plaza del Castillo or the cathedral.
