Rick Steves’ Mighty Alps

Mon. Feb. 26 at 8:30 p.m.

In the thin-air pledge special “Rick Steves’ Mighty Alps,” join Steves on an alpine adventure from Italy to Austria to Switzerland to France, with scenic train rides, breathtaking lifts, majestic glaciers, and unforgettable hikes.

In this greatest-hits blitz of the Alps, Steves celebrates both nature and culture. He takes viewers along for the journey to conquer the Dolomites in Italy and the Zugspitze in Austria. Then in Switzerland, Steves savors more jaw-dropping mountain beauty, from the Matterhorn to the Jungfrau to Appenzell. And in France, with Chamonix as a springboard, Steves rides the lift up to the Aiguille du Midi and hut-hops along the iconic Tour du Mont Blanc hiking path.

While visiting the literal high points of Europe, Steves inspires viewers to also enjoy alpine life, from its folk music to its rustic cheeses.
