Southern Switzerland - Zermatt, Lugano, Verbier, Locarno & Beyond (Travel Adventures)

Kimberly Rinker

Verbier, ZermattSaas-Fee, Lugano, LocarnoAscona - these are some of the attractions here. This region contains the two southernmost cantons of Valais and Ticino. Though connected, both are vastly different in terms of geography, language and culture. Valais is home to some of Switzerland's best ski resorts, including the village of Zermatt, and the mighty Matterhorn – perhaps the most frequently photographed mountain in the world outside of Mt. Everest. Located on the western side of the region, Valais is literally one long valley that sits snugly in between the Bernese and Valais mountain ranges. You can drive through easily via Highway 9, which will take you from one edge of the canton to the other, or you can take a train from almost anywhere in Switzerland. One of the best drives ever is to go south from Visp on Highway 9 to the village of Täsch, park your car and then take the rack railway up to the auto-free village of Zermatt. The scenery is spectacular and the roads are just plain fun if you enjoy a bit of challenging driving. The sister canton of Ticino at the eastern side of the southern region features palm trees, fruit groves and beautiful lakes. Here, Italian is the most popular language, and the atmosphere is laid-back and much more relaxed than in any other Swiss canton. Ticino is a mountainous area with attractive Alpine foothills, lakeside walking paths, and majestic peaks. Merlot is a very popular local wine, and the landscape and hills are dotted with tiny houses that are more reminiscent of neighboring Italy than of traditional Swiss chalets. It is here that you can travel through the St. Gotthard Pass or walk along the Strada Alta hiking trail. The author is a long-time resident of Switzerland and she details all of the best places to stay and eat, the castles, the walks, boat trips, skiing, shopping, museums, the foods, the best ways to get around - all you need to know.

Lugano, Switzerland Travel Guide: Sightseeing, Hotel, Restaurant & Shopping Highlights

Joshua Arnold

Located in the Ticino region of southern Switzerland, Lugano appears to be a slice of Italy cradled amidst Switzerland’s natural grandeur. Lugano is, in fact, one of the largest towns in Switzerland and is the biggest town outside Italy with an Italian-speaking majority. This Swiss city with a Mediterranean flavor is slowly becoming the toast of Swiss tourism with its beautiful mountains, picturesque lakes, and historic old town.Lugano Culture - Location & Orientation - Climate & When to Visit - Sightseeing Highlights - Lake Lugano - City Parks - Swissminiatur - Herman Hesse Museum - St Lawrence Cathedral - Swiss Customs Museum - Mt San Salvatore - Gandria - Locarno - St Moritz - Recommendations for the Budget Traveller - Places to Stay - Acquarello Swiss Quality Hotel - Albergo Stella - Locanda del Coventino - Hotel Villa Marita - Hotel Zurigo - Places to Eat - Antico Caprino Restaurant - Grotto San Rocco - Arte al Lago - Locanda del Conventino - Locanda Gandriese - Places to Shop - Via Nassa - The Lino Gabbani Shops - Street Markets - Via Cattedrale - Central Lugano Sud

Tälerhüpfen im Tessin (German Edition)

Jana Wessendorf

"Tälerhüpfen im Tessin" beschreibt zwölf 2-Tages-Wanderungen in der Sonnenstube der Schweiz: dem Tessin. Der südlichste Kanton der Schweiz ist eine Region der markanten Kontraste: rauhe, selten begangene, Berge und unzählige Badeseen, authentische Bergdörfer und lebendige Städte mit einem Hauch von Welt, ruhige Bergtäler und lebensfrohe Sommerfestivals . Es sind diese Gegensätze, die faszinieren. Was bedeutet "Tälerhüpfen"? Tälerhüpfen ist eine eigene Disziplin beim Bergwandern. Das Tessin bietet dem Wanderer eine Vielzahl von Bergtälern, ganz nah beieinander. Alle unterschiedlich – eng, wild, lieblich, waldreich, steil aufragend, ruhig oder lebendig. Jede Wanderung lässt den Wanderer sprichwörtlich zwischen einzelnen Tälern wandern oder von einem in ein anderes Tal hüpfen! Das ermöglicht das Kennenlernen vieler verschiedener Bergtäler, wobei alle ihre Eigenheiten haben! Das Reizvolle? Diese Besonderheiten und Eigentümlichkeiten eines jeden Bergtals individuell und zu Fuß unterwegs entdecken! Was ist das Besondere an diesem Wanderführer? Er zelebriert die Tessiner Wegbaukunst!

Leserstimmen zum Buch "Tälerhüpfen im Tessin": „Wessendorfs Buch ist anders: Alle Wanderungen führen nämlich von einem Tal in ein anderes. Die SAC-Tourenleiterin zelebriert die steilen Flanken, die die meisten anderen Wanderführer zu vermeiden versuchen oder nur als notwendiges Übel bei einem Gipfelanstieg in Kauf nehmen, geradezu. Das jedoch, ohne sportliche Höchstleistungen zu erwarten. Wessendorf ist eine Advokatin des langsamen, genussvollen Wanderns.“ (Tessiner Zeitung) „Dein Buch ist dir wirklich gelungen! Ich kann nur sagen, dass du deinen Lesern viel Inhalt fürs Geld bietest. Du hast ein unglaublich gut strukturiertes, nützliches Werk verfasst. Toll!“ (Sandra B.) „Du hast einen guten Stil gefunden. Das Buch liest sich flüssig und leicht. Mann kann problemlos die Touren nachvollziehen. Gut gemacht!“ (Adelbert W.) Jana Wessendorfs Blog: www.zufussunterwegs.com
