Do you have a favorite Alpine destination?

Jump to last reply

I'll be too broke to travel for at least 15 months, but I'm daydreaming about a destination that has great mountain scenery for a trip in fall of 2014, perhaps.

I no longer ski--come to think of it, what I did on skis in the 60's couldn't really be classified as genuine skiing. Mostly it was just standing up briefly and then falling on skis. That's not germane to this post, though. I just want to say that this won't be a skiing destination per se. Perhaps a place like Berchtesgaden.

What I want is suggestions for pretty towns in mountainous areas--the Alps, the Dolomites, even the Carpathians--where I can hang around and explore. I don't do serious hiking, but I do like to walk in non-challenging towns or countryside.

Any suggestions?
