I have a point layer with multiple points and a layer with the starting point (fire station).

In the end, I want to create a contour file with distances. But in such a way that the approximate distance is given and not the direct distance.

My question is: How can I create the lines between points and the lines must be connected to the nearest point.

I want wo be able to measure the distance approximatley by road and not the direct distance (see below).

I want to see the distance of this

    I think as a first step you need to convert your roads into lines. I am not aware of a method routing along points. – MrXsquared Jul 7 '19 at 18:47

    Anita Graser (aka underdark) has posted information on QGIS routing that may help you: anitagraser.com/2019/07/07/… – Stu Smith Jul 8 '19 at 15:42
  • Also, in your first sentence, do you mean "... A point layer with multiple points... ? – Stu Smith Jul 8 '19 at 15:44
