Regarded by some as the epitome of scenic beauty, this travel guide conveys the sweeping landscape of Switzerland. From the far west of Geneva along the French border to Basel, the images follow the mountainous terrain of the Jura, continuing on to the northeast and the generous plains of the Swiss Mittelland. The mighty massifs of the Alps are explored as well as the linguistic and cultural boundaries encountered while crossing the country—from French and German in Valais’ Rhone Valley to the now rare Romansch in the Upper Rhine Valley and Engadin—expressing the diversity that makes Switzerland strong. Detailing the French shores of Lake Geneva, the romantic Alpine villages of Graubünden, the mighty peaks of the Bernese Oberlan, and the Mediterranean outpost of Ticino, this handbook also focuses on art and architecture, culinary delights from cheese to chocolate, and the long and arduous history of traversing the Alps.

Roland Gerth is a freelance photographer who specializes in Switzerland. His work has been featured in several illustrated books, calendars, and reports. Reinhard Ilg is a journalist who specializes in travel. He is the author of several books on various destinations, including Norway, Denmark, and Lithuania.
