The Wojciech Weiss Calvary Route is a proposal to visit Kalwaria Zebrzydowska following the footsteps of Wojciech Weiss and his wife, Aneri. It is a two-loop hiking and car route. The A loop is dedicated to hikers and invites to follow the footsteps of Wojciech Weiss by the Calvary paths. The B loop runs through the less well-known corners of Kalwaria Zebrzydowska and nearby Zebrzydowice, and is recommended for tourist with car.

Wojciech Weiss (1875–1950) was an outstanding painter and graphic artist, student, professor and rector of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. Born in emigration in Romania, he began studying in Lviv, from where he moved to Krakow to be linked to this city for the rest of his life.
