Products from Berg- und Naturverlag Rölke
Mountain publisher Rölke from Dresden
The Mountain Publishing house (Berg- und Naturverlag) Rölke, based in Dresden, has already published 19 hiking and nature guides. At present, there are descriptions covering the whole of Saxon Switzerland and the Dresden Elbland. In addition, there are two hiking guides on the Ore Mountains, two on Lusatia and, in recent years, four hiking guides on interesting destinations in northern Bohemia.
Dr Peter Rölke, who is also a member of the board of the Saxon Mountaineering Association, also publishes the official climbing guides for Saxon Switzerland. Illustrated books and monographs complete the publishing programme.
The special feature is the wide range of scientifically sound and easy-to-understand information, which is ensured by the collaboration of renowned authors. For example, the biologists Ulrich Augst from Sebnitz and Holm Riebe from Zittau, the historian Manfred Schober Sebnitz and the geologist Prof. Dr. Klaus Thalheim, to name but a few, have contributed.
Work is being done on constantly updating the books, whether it is checking the hiking trail guidance, creating up-to-date trail sketches and incorporating new points of interest.
