For planning walks on the GR5. With the different features on this page, parts of the GR5 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 point and an end point in the table and press the start and end point button below the table.
- More options see the text below the table.

Select a route of up to 100km for the highest level of detail of the route on the map and an elevation graph.
The route of the GR5 is based on Openstreetmap.org data. The route is obtained from waymarkedtrail.org.
The GR5 is part of the European hiking route E2. On openstreetmap.org and waymarkedtrails.org the route is therefore also indicated as E2.
The most recent version of the route can be seen on Waymarkedtrails (WT) and Openstreetmap (OSM). (Date last update on this website)

The exact locations of Cities, Towns, Villages and Hamlets are based on the locations that Openstreetmap 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 GR5 to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the GR5 is the shortest distance to the GR5 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 GR5 + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the GR5 + Distance between the two nearest points on the GR5
If points 1 and 2 are close to the GR5, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from GR5, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.
It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the GR5 and from the GR5 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 GR5 and from the GR5 to the end point.
The track of the GR5 may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path!
