GR129 – Across Belgium

The GR129 is one of the many long distance hiking routes in Europe. The GR129 is also known as ‘Across Belgium’ (Dutch: Dwars door Belgie; French: La Belgique en diagonale).

The total length of the path is almost 600km and goes all the way from Bruges in the North West to Arlon in the South East of Belgium. The last part of this trail was only recently added in 2012.

The three main parts are:

  • Brugge – Ronse / Renaix: 118 km
  • Ronse / Renaix – Dinant: 189 km (?)
  • Dinant – Arlon: 254km

I’ve started with the last part from Dinant to Arlon. When that was finished, I started in Bruges for the Flemish part of the GR129. This part from Bruges to Ronse is now almost done and we are looking forward to continue with the trail to connect part one with part three.
