From the Publisher

Switzerland, Germany, Italy, France, Austria - the Alps extend through them all. A veteran alpine adventurer, the author shows you how to experience the all-season excitement and beauty of Europe's most magnificent mountain range: its flora, fauna and history; its people, foods and festivals; and, of course, its cultural and outdoor adventures. Visit Cortina, St. Moritz, Innsbruck, Chamonix, Zermatt, Salzburg, Munich, Bavaria, Milan, Venice and Interlaken - as well as lesser-known gems like Oberammergau, Bellagio and Berchtesgaden. Town and regional maps.

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.

Here is a guide to. . . Traditional mountain hamlets oozing with allure; Resorts where the revelry stars early and lasts long; Fun destinations for couples, groups, parents, and kids; Discreet retreats for a refined holiday; Resorts where socialites show up just to show off; Havens of hedonism for shopping, dining, and entertainment; Trails for walking, biking, and snow sports; The Alps’ most pristine wilderness areas; The most dramatic drives; And the most spectacular mountains, each easily accessed by cableway, trail, or train.

Tourism Woes Threaten Retail

THE LAST THING beleaguered high-end U.S. retailers need right now is for another big chunk of their customer base to go AWOL.
