Description

Over 100 walking routes in the Bernese Alps are described in this guidebook. It is an indispensable companion to the Bernese Oberland region that boasts famous peaks such as the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. But there are lesser-known mountains, too, that are just as scenically dramatic, and in their shadow peaceful villages and seemingly forgotten hamlets are lodged in spectacular locations. Add to that the romantic valleys, lakes, flower-filled meadows and a network of mountain huts and rustic inns for those who want to experience the Alps of the Victorian pioneers, and you'll understand why the Bernese Alps seduce the connoisseur back year after year. The guide is divided into sections on particular areas in the Bernese Oberland, for example, Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, Meiringen, Kandersteg, Griesalp and others. Additionally, the guidebook includes useful practical information on getting to and around the region, where to stay and how to prepare for a trip into the Bernese Alps. All this, and more, is available to the mountain hiker, and this indispensable guide will enable you to explore the very best of the Bernese mountain wonderland.
