This special Rother Guide describes all 32 Via Ferrata routes (‘Iron way’, climbing/hiking trails with fixed eqipment such as ladders, steps and cables) in Switzerland, as well as the 23 beautiful secured paths, including one 5-day walk. Routes are described in great detail and are each accompanied by a small detailed map. A precise grading system helps you to pick out a route more easily. Concise information about the starting points, height gain and walking times, grade and bases help with the planning of the routes as well as route finding up the mountain.

Despite being a relatively recent addition to the Swiss scenery (the first was established in 1993), via ferrate now connect and enable access to some of the most beautiful landscapes of the Alps, from the popular and well-travelled areas to the more remote. Many of the Swiss via ferrate, while safe and secure, are simple & unembellished enough to provide a challenge.

About this series:

Rother Walking Guides were first published in 1920- since then Bergverlag Rother have continued to produce these comprehensive guides to “the finest valley and mountain walks”.

Each book has a detailed description of walks, small walking maps and many tips on combining the walks, places of interest, accommodation and public transport; the guides are all in full colour with varying scales and types of cartography - the walks themselves vary from day-long hikes to mountain and valley walks, with varying levels of ease and difficulty indicated.
Small enough to fit in your pocket, comprehensive enough to take you everywhere; the books are printed in paperback but with a polytex-laminated cover, making them extremely durable too.
