Books Info:

Journey Through the Allgau (Journey Through free pdf Rolling hills, magnificent Alpine panoramas, jagged precipices, deep ravines, lush meadows of wildflowers, glittering turquoise lakes, and sheer walls of rock are just a few picturesque features this photographic travel guide offers in exploring the Allgau. Illustrating the region as diverse in nature, this array of images explores its lofty summits, such as the Hochvogel, the Madelegabel, and the Hoher Ifen, forming a marvelous backdrop to a cultural landscape which has evolved over thousands of years. The ancient Roman settlement of Kempten is depicted as a present-day, bustling regional metropolis, and the medieval cities of Memmingen and Kaufbeuren effuse a wonderful historic charm. Isny's hidden courtyards, Leutkirch's winding streets, and Wangen's ancient fountains, towers, patrician houses, and artisans' dwellings are also presented in striking detail. From the isolated chalet farms, proud castles, fine churches, and tiny chapels punctuating the undulating countryside to the hallmark of the East Allgau--the royal residences of Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein--this handbook portrays this captivating region in all it glorious variety, with additional features on the region's traditional festivals, the life and work of pastor Sebastian Kneipp, and culinary specialties--from cheese and "Spatzle" to exquisite desserts.
