Details

This is a profusely illustrated book in A4 format which describes about 200 of the lakes in Switzerland. The first half of the book describes the 20 lakes which enjoy scheduled boat services: the lake setting, the lakeside communities large and small, the boat routes and the boats which are used, be they hundred year-old paddle steamers or modern motor vessels. The second half of the book provides a brief description, with at least one photograph for each, of about 180 other lakes. These include the famous and the obscure; the Alpine or the low-lying; and vary from deep reservoirs in harsh surroundings to quiet havens for wildlife in idyllic settings Together with the Society's book about Swiss mountains, this book will help to explain why many people holiday regularly in Switzerland.
