The Alps is a vast mountain system in south central Europe, extending over 600 miles through South France, North Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria and Slovenia. It includes several hundred peaks and glaciers, including numerous peaks over 12,000 feet, with Mont Blanc highest at 15,771 feet.

Throughout the twentieth century Alpine Tourism has grown to the point where it is the primary industry in many Alpine regions. High mountain railways, ski-lifts, huts, lodges and hotels make the Alps one of the most accessible mountain areas in the world.
