GLOBAL FESTIVAL: The walking tours are inspired by Jane Jacobs.

AROUND 140 people took part in the opening day of Jane’s Walk, with a route focusing on Germans who work in the city of Palma.

The route was led by Mallorca Zeitung journalists Stephanie Schuster and Patrick Schirmer Sastre. One of the Germans spotlighted on the route was Christoph Hafner of Pep Lemon.

Another was Gerhardt Braun, a gallerist in the Born area of Palma. The third stop on the route was at the Council of Tourism to talk with journalist Alexandra Wilms, the head of press for Biel Barcelo.


The route also included a stop in Son Gotleu to analyse living conditions there, and finished up in the historic centre with the ‘Via Corrrupta’ guided tour of places symbolising corruption in Palma.

Jane’s Walk is a global festival of citizen-led walking tours inspired by North American journalist, writer and activist Jane Jacobs, which aims to get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cites and connect with neighbours.

Jane’s Walk took place on May 6, 7 and 8.
