“Wanderschaft” is a unique surviving medieval tradition in modern Germany.

After finishing their apprenticeship, young craftsmen and craftswomen leave home, family, friends and all their belongings in order to travel and make work experiences in their crafts. Dressed always with the traditional corduroy suit and a black hat, carrying a weird stick and a tiny luggage, the Wandergesellen (journeying carpenters, stonemasons, smiths and so on) choose to be free and homeless for, so the rule, at least three years and one day.
With many handed down secret rituals and rules, nowadays craftswomen are allowed on the road too: I traveled extensively with many of them. Wandertage took the form of a Wanderbuch, the handmade diary Wandergesellen always carry with them, containing job references, city seals and all the history of their Walz.
