Switzerland's Mountain Inns: A Walking Vacation in a World Apart Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first book in English about these unusual lodgings. The mountain inns of Switzerland--her "Berghotels"--are in a world apart. Largely undiscovered, unadvertised, and privately owned, they are ideal for the traveler who wishes to experience the Swiss Alps off the beaten track. In themselves, they provide a sense of adventure; every one is unique, informal, intimate. They are a perfect way to meet other hikers and locals. This book identifies the most charming Berghotels, tells you how to reach them, what to expect, and what to bring. Day hikes from each inn are described in detail, along with information on how to connect one to another to make an extended "Grand Traverse" holiday. Maps give an overview of each region of the country to make trip planning and inn-to-inn hiking easy. The book is gorgeously illustrated by Philip Lieberman's photographs.
