About this book

With its launch on the shores of beautiful Lake Constance, the long-distance European pathway E5 (approx 600km in length) makes its way southeast through rural alpine regions in Switzerland, Austria and Italy, to finish in Verona. This work talks about this walk.

'This is the first detailed guide in English to a relatively unknown European long-distance route. Beginning at Lake Constance in Germany, the trail passes through low-level Switzerland and rural Bavaria before traversing Austria's Otztaler Alps and heading south to Italy's mountainous Trentino region, finishing at Verona.Despite a total height gain of 21,000m, it is a route suitable for walkers at every level. And the scenery is beautiful.'(Walking World Ireland / July - August 2007)
