Product description


The mountain inns of Switzerland - "Berghotels" - are in a world apart. Largely undiscovered, unadvertised, and all privately owned, they are ideal for the traveller who wishes to explore the Swiss Alps off the beaten track. In themselves, these inns provide a sense of adventure and every one is unique, informal and intimate. They are a perfect way to meet other hikers and locals. This guide identifies the most charming Berghotels, tells you how to reach them, what to expect and what to bring. Day hikes from each inn are described in detail, along with information on how to connect one to another to make an extended "Grand Traverse" holiday. Maps give an overview of each region of the country to make trip planning and inn-to-inn hiking easy.
