Marcia & Philip Lieberman, Switzerland’s Mountain Inns (Countryman, US). Lovingly folksy walking tour of many isolated Berghäuser tucked away in the remote Alps, along with plenty of tried and trusted advice for hikers looking to get away from it all.
Marcia & Philip Lieberman, Walking Switzerland The Swiss Way (Mountaineers, US). Quality guide to walks throughout the country, with full background, plus plenty of trail information and practical guidelines.
Kev Reynolds, Walking in the Alps, The Valais, Central Switzerland, The Jura (with R. Brian Evans), The Engadine, Ticino, The Alpine Pass Route, and Chamonix to Zermatt: The Walker’s Haute Route (all Cicerone, UK; some Hunter, US, others Interlink, US). The classic Swiss walking guides, vividly and knowledgeably written, containing detailed route descriptions and sketch-maps. Walking in the Alps is the largest, an amalgam of several long-distance routes with new trails; all the others are neat little volumes concentrating on particular areas or hikes.
Ian Robertson, Blue Guide: Switzerland (A&C Black/Norton). Encyclopedic historical and architectural tour of the whole country, packed with detail on virtually every historical building and a wealth of sketched-out mountain walks and climbs, but lacking any practical information on how to get around or where to stay.
Elisabeth Upton-Eichenberger, Vaud and Zermatt (Upton-Eichenberger, UK). Excellent self-published guides to two of the country’s most celebrated corners, full of tales, historical odds and ends, and other delightfully long-winded material that gets edited out of most ordinary guidebooks.
