Made from love to
photography and mountains
Switzerland, and especially the Swiss Alps, are somehow not discovered yet by photographers. Indeed, there are famous spots like Zermatt or Lucerne. But this is surprisingly too little for a country with such marvellous mountains. We want to encourage you to explore more, find some new places and get unique photos.
We moved to Switzerland a couple of years ago looking for new experiences, careers and safety. We didn't even consider it until we hiked Rigi Kulm in June during a short break on our business trip. But after that one day, our priorities shifted. We have fallen in love with Switzerland, the Alps and cows.
Surprisingly, we quickly discovered that just in our vicinity, there are places with marvellous views that no one heard about, even our Swiss friends. So we started our exploration of Switzerland, and the weekend after the weekend, more spots for photos were found and visited. Today, markers from our bucket list cover nearly the entire map of the country. Some are great, some are fantastic, and some are just OK. The best ones, those verified and photographed, we want to bring to you.
