134 locations and spots described in
a series of photo guide e-books
All the best places for taking photos in Switzerland and in the Swiss Alps. From bustling cities, through historic old towns and pristine lakes, to sharp, rocky peaks and snow-covered glaciers.
We have been photographing Switzerland and the Swiss Alps since 2018 in every spare time we have. Simply, we love exploring and capturing this highly elevated part of the world. We have visited the most obvious touristic spots like Zermatt or Lucerne along with other locations popular on Instagram and in social media. However, despite checking spots of Swiss bucket list, we are constantly looking for new, interesting locations, ones even unknown even to most of Swiss people.
