Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Rough Guide to Switzerland tells you all there is to know about this beautiful and varied country. The 36-page, full-colour section introduces all of Switzerlands highlights, from snowboarding in the Alps and sampling swiss wine to the countrys Gothic cathedrals and medieval castles. The guide includes extensive listings of the all the top places to eat, drink and stay, whatever your budget, plus brand-new author picks to highlight the very best. There is plenty of practical advice on outdoor pursuits, including where to find the best mountain walks and most scenic ski resorts. The guide takes a detailed look at Switzerlands history, wildlife and culture and comes complete with maps and plans for every region."

Synopsis:

Philipp M. Gollner (reader), Zurich, Switzerland: "One of the best travel books on Switzerland ... the Rough Guide stands out because of its thoroughness: it goes well beyond the usual travelbook sketches to include specific information on transportation, accommodation, dining and local customs. Unlike other guides, it has extremely useful information on local regulations, for which Switzerland is sadly famous. For example, it notes that 'parking in Switzerland is hellish', and goes on to describe in detail the parking regulations in Zurich and Geneva (which almost require you to have a law degree to understand)."

Synopsis:

The Rough Guide to Switzerland digs beneath the hype to show you how to get the best of this beautiful country. A full-colour section introduces Switzerlands highlights from the iconic Matterhorn to Zurichs markets. Throughout the guide there are inspiring accounts of every attraction, from world-class art galleries to classic train journeys. There is practical advice on where to find the best mountain walks, the most scenic ski resorts and perfect alpine hideaways. In addition there are accommodation reviews for all budgets and in-depth background on Swiss culture, history and wildlife.

Synopsis:

Gives the inside story on one of Europe's most touristed and least-known countries, debunking the myth that Switzerland is only for the rich and famous.

Full coverage of all three linguistic regions (French, German and Italian) and the ski meccas across the country.

Unbiased reviews of accommodation, restaurants nightlife for all budgets.

Practical information on hiking, touring by car or public transport.

And Rough Guides trademark incisive background on Swiss culture, past and present, from the unique brand of democracy to traditional sports. Anyone for a game of hornussen?
