Notes on the map and the table

The part of the route in the Netherlands to Bergen op Zoom is based on wandelnet.nl GR5.
The part through Flanders (from Bergen op Zoom) is based on groteroutepaden.be GR5
The part by Wallonia and Luxembourg is based on
grsentiers.org GR5.
The French part to Metz is based on routeyou.com user Robinou.
The part Metz to Nice is based on gr-infos.com GR5.
Heights have been added to Waymarkedtrails tracks using the website gpsvisualizer.com.

The exact locations of 'Towns' are based on the locations Google Maps gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center of the town.

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 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!
