The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Pelgrimspad is the shortest distance to the Pelgrimspad 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 Pelgrimspad + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Pelgrimspad + Distance between the two nearest points on the Pelgrimspad
If points 1 and 2 are close to the Pelgrimspad, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from Pelgrimspad, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.
