Description

This fifth edition of John Hermann's classic Motorcycle Journeys Through the Alps and Beyond touring guide is the best-loved and most-respected resource for any traveler planning to ride the high and twisty roads of Europe.

Detailing more area than any previous edition, Hermann's fun-to-read text has been thoroughly updated and revised, now adding new roads in Switzerland and France. All maps feature mountain relief backgrounds to highlight the topography, and many spectacular new photos have been added. Every region of the Alps is covered: Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, and even special alpine-lookalike places such as Corsica, Slovenia, and the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa mountain ranges of Spain. All of the important roads and passes are described and critiqued. 

Each recommended trip features a detailed route description, easy-to-follow maps, advice on accommodations and things to do, and plenty of inspiring photographs. Local customs, history, and amusing travel anecdotes dot every page to enrich the journey. There is no other motorcycle travel guide like this one! 

Motorcycle Journeys Through the Alps and Beyond  is simply the best guide for any motorcyclist planning their trip of a lifetime to motorcycling's nirvana.

The author

Known in BMW circles as the "King of the Alps," John Hermann bought his first bike in 1960.  Since then he has clocked over 1,000,000 miles, many of them on his biannual trips to Europe to explore every nook and cranny that might possibly have a twisty road.
