History of the Alps
The Alps have known all. They have witnessed history unfold. Many people and events can be traced back to this natural range – from the Romans’ invasion of Gaul to the birth of mountaineering, and the breaking down of political borders.
Home to vast mountains full of immense glaciers, they are a majestic feature on any map and have become the symbol for alpinism. The Alps spans an area greater than the territory of any European country except Russia. History, culture and nature are intertwined here as nowhere else on Earth and this great landscape owes its present appearance to the tremendous forces that over thousands of years have shaped the land.
