Although the travel restrictions of recent months are gradually being relaxed again, many of us have nevertheless planned to spend our summer holidays in Switzerland this time. So the 272-page book “Wild und frisch: Tessin; Die schönsten Badeplätze an Seen, Flüssen und Wasserfällen” (in German only) by Iwona Eberle (text) and Christoph Hurni (photos), recently published by Salamander-Verlag, is just in time. This informative work is also very suitable for a weekend trip to Ticino.
The book takes adventurers, water rats and connoisseurs of all ages to spectacularly beautiful places by the water. Among them are many that hardly anyone knows. 120 bathing places with their turquoise blue pools, dramatically polished rocks, tumbling waterfalls and cozy sandy beaches are presented in pictures and text.
They are all within walking distance from a public transport stop or car park in no more than one hour. Thanks to maps, coordinates and precise descriptions of the access, you can reach them in the easiest way. Many tips on safety and information on pleasant grotti, gelati and weekly markets complete the guide.
You can order this truely useful Book directly at the Salamander-Verlag at the price of CHF 39.
