But most of all, let us introduce to you some outstanding Alpine personalities that celebrate their homes and traditions, rethinking hospitality in impressive scenery.”
The Montamont Alpine Travel Guide series captures the hearts and souls of the establishments throughout the Alpine region, acquainting you with special experiences, from hotels to art cafes to picturesque travel routes and architectural highlights.
The three-part Montamont A.T.C. series presents a curated collection of places beyond the usual paths with three beautifully designed and made guidebooks focusing on different geographical areas. The guides take on a different approach versus a traditional travel guide, as it aims to capture the atmosphere and ambiance over facts and figures – something we can all find with a quick Google search. The three guides focus on building connections with the places, hosts, and true experiences featured, listing three unique characteristics of each featured establishment ranging from featured art and interior design to contemporary alpine kitchens and more.
The first book South Tyrol Guide: from Brenner Pass to Bolzano Reschenpass to Meran Bruneck to Sexten, takes you on an extraordinary journey through South Tyrol. “We’ve put together exquisite routes to the best places for travelers seeking to truly connect with the Italian Alps and the South Tyrolean people.”
The second part of the series The Vorarlberg Guide: Voralberg from Klösterle to Bregenz Flexenpass to Mellau Schwarzenberg to Hittisau, takes you on a journey through Vorarlberg and presents you with some of the most authentic and charming accommodations, on the way from the white peaks of the Arlberg Pass to a relaxed sundowner on the glittering pink shores of Lake Constance. “We explore the architectural highlights of the Bregenzerwald, where everything revolves around building culture, craftsmanship, historic parlors, and the region’s down-to-earth, good cuisine.”
There is so much more to discover here than the glitz and glamour of the famous St. Moritz. Between high alpine passes and that certain “Heidi” feeling we find those houses and their hosts, who dust off the old walls with a new vision and like to keep their secret character. – Isabella & Mike Rabensteiner
And now the latest addition to the series: Grisons Guide: Graubünden from Malojapass to Scuol Oberalpass to Chur Splüngenpass to Klosters, is where urban spirit mixes with fresh mountain air, where you can experience art in all its forms in remote places. And where an international crowd celebrates its summer retreats in the salons of old grand hotels or while relaxing in the alpine meadows. “There is so much more to discover here than the glitz and glamour of the famous St. Moritz. Between high alpine passes and that certain “Heidi” feeling we find those houses and their hosts, who dust off the old walls with a new vision and like to keep their secret character.”
The recently released third part of the series, the Grisons Guide is printed on beautiful Gmund Urban Cement, Grey 310 g/m², exclusively available at Europapier Group. The paper was chosen for its natural look and rough feel, and how amazing it blends in nature, especially in a mountainous landscape. It looks like the natural continuation of the mountain, making it the perfect fit for the region the book aims to highlight.
All guides are available to buy, in both English and German language and they make great additions for your future travel and exploration plans.
