Just Returned from Switzerland

I just returned from a 2 1/2 week trip to the Bernese Oberland region in Switzerland and if you plan on doing any extensive hiking this book is a great guide. I used local maps as well as this book as my sole resources while in the area and had a great trip with amazing hiking. Definately recommend it if you're going to be in this area for any extended amount of time.


I was hiking 8 days in the bernese alps, and this book is almost perfect for it. almost - because all of its trips are day trips, but it has in its end a multi-day tours combination (from the 1 day tours) - one of them I did. (Meiringen - Griesalp). The book is very detailed, and also points out to the problems in the extraordinary marked swiss paths. one other thing I missed in it, is the lack of map (or drawing) with all the trips of that area. last thing: since this is not the swiss pass route book, maybe there was a place for more details on the villages them self, and\or attractions in them. (the example I have in mind is the Trümmelbach waterfalls in Lauterbrunnen") Overall - I am very happy with it and recommend it highly. one last thing: for the swiss pass route, there are excellent sites with lots of details, which might make this book redundant.
