The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!! This is because the actual routes from the Eifelsteig to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Eifelsteig is the shortest distance to the Eifelsteig in a direct line.
The distances between two POIs (point 1 and point 2) are calculated as follows
Total distance = Distance point 1 to nearest point on the Eifelsteig + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Eifelsteig + Distance between the two nearest points on the Eifelsteig
If points 1 and 2 are close to the Eifelsteig, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from Eifelsteig, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.
It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the Eifelsteig and from the Eifelsteig to the end of a stage! This may e.g. by zooming in on the map and checking for a path or road from the starting point to the Eifelsteig and from the Eifelsteig to the end point.
The track of the Eifelsteig may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path!
