The backbone of our map consists of contour lines at intervals of 250 metres. Thus, the map looks vivid and nicely illustrates the topography of the Alps. Besides, in order to give reference points, we show the important towns, rivers, mountain passes and mountains, as well as the boundaries of the eight Alpine countries and regions.
Our map depicts the most important mountains in the Alps.
The selection of these mountains is fpartially subjective. Criteria for our selection were a great geographical, cultural or geological importance. And we made sure that we equally cover the entire Alpine region.
Completing the map are 20 special trails in the Alps:
Alpe-Adria-Trail, Austria Skyline Trail, Bärentrek, Dolomiten Höhenweg Nr. 9, Fernwanderweg E1, Fernwanderweg E5, Gesäuser Hüttenrundwanderweg, Giro del Monviso, GR 54 -Tour des Ecrins et de L'oisans, Jakobsweg, Ostallgäuer Höhenweg, Schladminger Tauern Höhenweg, Tour Des Glaciers, Tour du Mont Blanc, Tour Monte Rosa, Traumpfad: München - Venedig, Via Alpina - Roter Weg, Via Alpina - Violetter Weg, Walker's Haute Route and Walserweg Graubünden.
We have chosen popularity, regional distribution, and length as the main criteria to represent a diverse range of hiking trails. We also included detailed elevation profiles for all 20 trails.
We are thankful to renowned Alpine explorers and mountain chroniclers Eberhard Jurgalski and Oliver Klemm, who provided the information about the mountains.
