The Alps Adventure Guide is your all-season guide to Europe’s mountains – the best cities, national parks, and resort destinations in the alpine regions of Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland.
Included are sight-seeing and adventure tips for cosmopolitan gateway cities such as Salzburg, Innsbruck, Munich, Geneva, Lucerne, Milan, and Venice; for famed resorts such as Zermatt, Garmisch, Chamonix, St. Anton, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Interlaken, and St. Moritz; and for hideaway gems such as Lech, Courmayeur, Oberammergau, Murren, and Saas-Fee.
The Alps Adventure Guide shows you how to experience the Alps more intensely and directly than most travelers ever will – getting out of the bus, taxi, or rental car and seeing it all close-up, through walks, bike rides, horseback excursions, winter sports, culinary adventures, and interaction with the local people. For each destination, you’ll learn what to see, where to sleep, where to eat, where to party, and where to play.
