Made from love to
photography and mountains

Switzerland, especially the Swiss Alps, are somehow not yet discovered by photographers. Indeed, there are famous spots like Zermatt or Lucerne. But this is surprisingly too little for a country with such marvellous mountains. I want to encourage you to explore more, find new places and get unique photos.

The story behind...

I moved to Switzerland five years ago, looking for new experiences, careers and safety. I didn't even consider it until I hiked Rigi Kulm during a short business trip break in June. But after that one day, my priorities shifted. I have fallen in love with Switzerland, the Alps and cows. 

Surprisingly, I quickly discovered that just in our vicinity, there are places with marvellous views that no one had heard about, even our Swiss friends. So I 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, I want to bring to you.
