This third edition describes 79 individual trips, each lasting about a day. Every region of the Alps is covered: Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, and even special Alpine lookalike places such as Corsica and Slovenia. Each trip has a detailed route description, easy-to-follow maps, and unique photographs, all brought to life by Hermann's informed, witty narration. Local customs, history, and amusing travel anecdotes dot every page to enrich your journey. You will find information on everything from colourful villages to special shops and restaurants and little-known spots where the views are particularly beautiful. He also tells where the local motorcyclists gather and the special roads they ride, including an 'Alps Pass-Bagging List' of 214 mountain passes to help you keep track of where you have been.
