Overview

Become an Easy Walker and enjoy the wonderful walking trails found in the Swiss and Austrian Alps. Using this guide and its maps, you can explore beautiful footpaths through mountain meadows and hamlets. Choose routes starting from one of the nineteen base villages selected by the authors for their magnificent mountain locales, charm, availability of public transportation, and accommodations. Rated at one of three levels of ease (gentle, comfortable, and more challenging), each walk takes from two to six hours, excluding "take in the view" breaks or picnics along the way. Whether you want to know the rules of the trail, which local hiking maps to purchase, what clothing to wear, or how to get discounts on travel to Europe, this book helps you get the most out of your alpine walking experience.
