Treinstappers from Grote Routepaden (GR)

Get out and about with the Treinstappers from Grote Routepaden (GR)

Discover new places, beautiful landscapes and hidden gems (including many green ones) in Flanders thanks to the series of Treinstappers from Grote Routepaden. The concept is simple: you get to the start of your walk by public transport and afterwards that’s how you safely travel back (or go on to the next Treinstapper). So you step from station to station, so to speak. It’s a sustainable way to travel and, what’s more, you can already use your travel time on the train to make plenty of preparations for your hike.

We selected these four Treinstappers from a wider range offered by Grote Routepaden. These one-day walks vary from 18 to 27 km. Along the way, you will pass a number of sights including: abbeys, breweries, art and heritage sites, oases of peace with beautiful views, nature reserves, visitor centres, parks and forests and stately castles. We also give you tips on where you can enjoy our local produce. The Treinstappers are an introduction to the various Flemish Grote Routepaden or GRs. 

Which Treinstapper appeals to you the most? Or will you maybe just decide to do them all? Using the ‘Map’ button, you can view the route you will be taking. Download the accompanying GPX free of charge on this website. On Walking from station to station, along GR-trails (, you can also order the various Treinstappers in a handy book format.
