This website is part of the documentation and public relations for the European cultural and landscape project “Starry Path/
The project was able to rely, in addition to the official partners (see below), on the committed participation of the districts, cities, municipalities, tourist institutions and service providers, those responsible for medieval churches, the regional churches and monasteries, the St. James societies (see below) and finally also the population on the edge of the paths of the pilgrims of St. James in the project area. In particular, also many - especially young - people, in the context of their further education and qualification have participated in this employment-political culture and landscape project.

Implementation and partners
In order to implement the project idea in terms of employment policy, the ARGEs of the Saarbrücken regional association and the Saarpfalz district set up job opportunities (AGH) on the basis of Hartz IV, which were realized by the Zentrum für Bildung und Beruf Saar gGmbH in Burbach and the AQUIS Saarpfalz as the measure provider responsible for the area. The co-financing was provided by the European Social Fund (ESF). The artist Till Neu supported the project in the core zone in an advisory capacity. The implementation was completed in a first phase in the so-called core zone of the project (paths of the pilgrims of St. James from Hornbach via Saarbrücken/
Under the sponsorship of the Regional Association of Saarbrücken, the project has been successively further networked since 2011 with regard to the relocation of the waymarkers “Jacobean shellstones” at testimonies of medieval architectural culture at the edge of the paths of the pilgrims of St. James in the neighboring regions of Palatinate, Lorraine (Eurodistrict), Alsace with significant support of the St. James societies (networking zone).
The scallop stones required for this purpose will continue to be manufactured at the Zentrum für Bildung und Beruf Saar gGmbH in Saarbrücken Burbach (ZBB) as part of employment policy measures.
In cooperation with the St. James Society Rhineland-Palatinate-Saarland e.V., the Fédération Française de la Randonnée Pédestre as well as with the French St. James Societies (Les Amis de Saint-Jacques de Compostelle en Lorraine et en Alsace), the positioning and installation of the scallop stones on the paths of the St. James pilgrims in the Palatinate, Lorraine and Alsace was determined and realized (see above). They were also instrumental in the acquisition of the GPS data and the digitization of the itineraries in the networking zone.
