Thanks for posting this link...
What a cool site too - just about everything you need is right there. One
thing though, the "whole route" is 5000km, but there are many parallel
routes. I couldn't find any data for what "just the red route" is for

It seems they're really pushing for this to be a "tourist track", with
guide services, huts and the like - along with nothing too steep or
"wild". I liked this quote:

Consistent services: accommodation and catering every evening

How civilized :-)

I know there are some other less-civilized routes across the Alps... will
have to look into that. It seems that one could put together a really long
through-hike combining some of the via Alpina route(s) with some
alternates to go higher than 3000m in places...
