For planning walks on the GR12. With the different features on this page, parts of the GR12 can be selected and distances determined.
- Click on a name of a point in the table for a detailed map and more information.
- Or select your own start and end point on the map.
- Or select a start and end point in the table and press the 'Startendpoint' button below the table.
- More options see the text below the table.
The route of the GR12 is displayed in red. The shortest direct connections between the GR12 and the start and end points are shown in blue. These direct connections may not be possible!
Double-click a location on the map (near the GR12) for a new starting point of the route. Or click on the button for the route from the

The route in the Netherlands (Floris V path) is based on data from waymarkedrails.org and openstreetmap.org
The track of the Flemish part (Bergen op Zoom - Braine-le-Château) is based on information from the website www.groteroutepaden.be.
The Walloon part (Braine-le-Château to French border) is based on information from the website grsentiers.org.
The track of the French part is based on information from the website www.gr-infos.com:
Heights have been added to Waymarkedtrails tracks using the website gpsvisualizer.com.
The exact locations of Cities, Towns, Villages and Hamlets are based on the locations that Openstreetmap or Google Maps gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center.
The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!! This is because the actual routes from the GR12 to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the GR12 is the shortest distance to the GR12 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 GR12 + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the GR12 + Distance between the two nearest points on the GR12
If points 1 and 2 are close to the GR12, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from GR12, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.
It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the GR12 and from the GR12 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 GR12 and from the GR12 to the end point.
The track of the GR12 is from different sources and may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path!
