Grant Bourne is a New Zealander whose fascination with other lands and cultures has taken him through much of Asia, Africa, the Near East and Europe. He has written and illustrated numerous travel guides, the main focus being on Germany and New Zealand. His love of the outdoors has taken him not only along the magnificent tramping tracks of his native country, but also up the slopes of Mt Kenya in Africa, through the steamy jungles of Yucatan, the hills of northern Thailand and the trekking trails of Nepal. Now living in the beautiful Rhine Valley, Germany, he keeps himself (and his dog) fit by walking the many excellent trails along the Rhine, together with frequent walking holidays in the Bavarian and Swiss Alps.
A guidebook to valley and mountain walks in the Bavarian Alps, on the Austro-German border between Lake Constance and Berchtesgaden. Accessible from Munich, Salzburg and Innsbruck, these 85 routes range from half-day walks to 5-day hut-to-hut treks. Highlights include the Königssee and Breitach, Partnach and Höllental gorges.
