Walking in the Bavarian Alps : 70 mountain walks and treks in southern Germany Paperback
by Grant Bourne
This guidebook of walks explores Germany's Bavarian Alps.
Lying along the German-Austrian border in a thin sliver of land roughly 300km long, this area contains some of the most spectacular walking and beautiful scenery that Germany has to offer. 70 graded walks explore mountain landscapes, wild mountain gorges and alpine meadows as well as the region's picturesque villages, opulent baroque churches and fairy-tale castles like Neuschwanstein.
The walks are divided into six mountain areas, grouped around base towns to make planning a walking holiday as easy as possible.
Bases include Oberstdorf, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Mittenwald, Marquartstein, Inzell, Oberammergau and Ramsau among others.
Mountain walks are mainly between 3 and 8 hours duration, though some longer walks are included staying at mountain huts.
The guidebook gives an outline of two multi-day tours and suggestions for shorter valley walks of less than 3hrs are also included.
Relaxing beer gardens, colourful local traditions and excellent tourist infrastructure add to the region's charms, and make the Bavarian Alps the perfect destination for a walking holiday.
