Detailed Product Description
1993. 208 pp, color photos, maps. Few regions of the Alps contain greater contrasts than Central Switzerland. The shores of the riviera-like Lake of Lucerne and the ice-clad peaks of the Winterberg massif are a world apart, yet they have two things in common; both are scenically spectacular and with magnificent walking country nearby. This guidebook points the way to secluded corners of rarely-trodden glens as well as the better known valleys, along lakeside pathways and across lofty ridges with stunning views to dream on. Here indeed is a mountain region with vast potential for the walker and all who love fine scenery.

Lucerne, Brunnen, Altdorf, Andermatt and Engelberg ensure that there's no shortage of accommodation - of all standards. But there are also numerous other villages and remote alp hamlets, less known but no less lovely, that offer overnight lodgings in the peace of the mountains.

Kev Reynolds describes the villages, valleys and mountains of Central Switzerland, and provides 90 of the region's best walking routes that will lead to some of the finest views in all the Alps.
