              Franconia, the stretch of Germany between the Spessart and the Fichtelgebirge, is captured in this striking guide. Rich in scenery from the raw climes of low mountains to the idyllic Frankische Schweiz, from the gentle curves of the River Main to the glittering lakes of the Frank...isches Seenland, and from the dense forest of the Steigerwald to the open fields of the Ochsenfurter Gau, the region is showcased here for its diverse landscape as well as its artistic and cultural monuments, telling of Franconia's turbulent past. Its impressive churches are investigated along with its magnificent pilgrimage chapels, such as those at Vierzehnheiligen and Goweinstein, depicting the legacy of a people deeply rooted in religion. The free cities of Nuremberg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, and many others are portrayed, still effusing a sense of civic pride through its countless castles and palaces, illustrating a thirst for representation and power. The margravial residences of Ansbach and Bayreuth, medieval strongholds on the peaks of the Frankische Schweiz, and the Schonborn dynasty's palace in Pommersfelden also grace this guide. Showcasing Franconia in all its glorious variety, this handbook also contains additional features on its culinary delights, traditional festivals, artists and architects, and the intriguing case of Kaspar Hauser.

              Germany is a nation spread between rocky cliffs and sand dunes and mountainous Alps in the south, between the Rhine in the west and the Oder in the east, with a cultural heritage as manifold as its scenery. In over 180 striking photos this book presents all parts of the country w...ith their local sights and customs.The legendary Father Rhine and fairy-tale castles such as Schloss Neuschwanstein take us back to the days of yore. The different periods and architectural styles - from the imperial palaces of Charlemagne, the magnificant edificesof the Romanesque and Gothic to baroque Dresden, Prussian classicism and modern urban constructions in glass and steel - have all helped shape the face of Germany, telling of the county's turbulent history. Cities such as Weimar and Frankfurt am Main live and breathe their literary past, their great poets Goethe and Schiler seemingly ever present, with Berlin a cultural treasure-trove of theatres and museums. One of Germany's grand highlights is romantic Heidelberg. Local customs and festivals are also deeply rooted in German tradition, with Munich's Oktoberfest, the revelries at Carnival time and the various religous processions throughout the year, a few of the many examples.

              Regarded by some as the epitome of scenic beauty, this travel guide conveys the sweeping landscape of Switzerland. From the far west of Geneva along the French border to Basel, the images follow the mountainous terrain of the Jura, continuing on to the northeast and the generous ...plains of the Swiss Mittelland. The mighty massifs of the Alps are explored as well as the linguistic and cultural boundaries encountered while crossing the country--from French and German in Valais' Rhone Valley to the now rare Romansch in the Upper Rhine Valley and Engadin--expressing the diversity that makes Switzerland strong.
