Save Place
Hiking down the Schilthorn may be hard on your toes, but it's a high-altitude feast for the rest of your senses...From the Lauterbrunnen valley south of Interlaken, you can take a cable-car up to the summit and then hike down to Mürren, across...
Save Place
Gimmelwald, 3826 Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland
Gimmelwald is a tiny farm community in the mountains above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Hiking from here begins on nearly vertical trails along grassy pastureland. I've never hiked in a more beautiful place than this, where the view across the narrow...
Save Place
3920 Zermatt, Switzerland
Just as Rome has the Colosseum and Paris the Eiffel Tower, so Switzerland has the Matterhorn. Located above Zermatt, this 48,195-foot wonder attracts hordes of visitors, eager to see the morning sunlight beam off its four faces, ski its...
Save Place
Gandria, 6978 Lugano, Switzerland
Behold Gandria! When my Airbnb host first suggested I visit Gandria I was a little unsure, mostly because of it's name. But boy was she right, this little village navigable exclusively by foot was so picturesque and quiet. Situated on a hill just...
Save Place
Grand Hôtel, 3961 Chandolin, Switzerland
I visited Zermatt in the off season, and the streets were mostly deserted. This offered me lots of quiet time to explore a town that is usually packed with skiers and trainloads of tourists in town to get a look at the Matterhorn (myself...
Save Place
Filisur, Switzerland
Going for a drive on a Sunday afternoon in the Romansch-speaking high country in Graubunden, Switzerland, where road and railroad crisscross each other frequently in the Alps, often on century-old stone bridges. I was staying with a...
Save Place
6633 Lavertezzo, Switzerland
It is the 60th birthday of a Swiss native and this is where she wants to go. A place where water can be drunk straight from the stream. A place where her family came every summer, to a small cottage across the double arched bridge, to live the...
Save Place
9050 Appenzell District, Switzerland
Hiking from Appenzell to Wasserauen, the trail took me through parks, villages, and right through the farmlands of the locals. The day of my hike was overcast and foggy, but when we passed this cluster of farms the sun came out and lit up the...
Save Place
Lucerne, Switzerland
The postcard view of Lucerne ("Luzern" in German) almost always includes this triad: Mt. Pilatus (2,132m/7000ft), the 14th-century Kapellbrücke Bridge, and its Wasserturm ('Water Tower'). The "Golden Round Trip" offered to tourists is, well,...
Save Place
Limmat, Switzerland
A cold sunny day in Zurich means a perfect day for a photo shoot in the city. Here at the bridge across the Limmat River, I can see clearly the point of interests in Zurich; Grossmünster (Great Minster) on the right side with Fraumünster (Women's...
Save Place
Münsterbrücke, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
I love the bicycle, and cycling is an activity I try to do in every single place that I visit. There is nothing like exploring a city on a bike, although in some places this can be a challenge. Zurich, Switzerland, has made it incredibly easy to...
Save Place
Lago di Poschiavo, Poschiavo, Switzerland
One of many pictures on the breathtakingly beautiful Bernina Express train ride, from Triano, Italy over the Alps to St. Moritz, Switzerland.
Save Place
Lake Lugano
Lake Lugano snakes between two countries, with two-thirds in Switzerland and one-third in Italy.
Save Place
Grossmünsterplatz, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
According to legend, Zurich’s most iconic landmark was commissioned by Charlemagne. While Fraumünster, across the Limmat, draws onlookers with its stained-glass windows by Chagall, Grossmünster recently acquired destination-worthy...
Save Place
Maienfeld, Switzerland
Years ago, some relatives wanted to visit Switzerland while I was living in France. So we met up and I played tour-guide for a couple of weeks during the spring... Can you get any more 'typisch' than this: cows in a flowered meadow beneath the...
Save Place
Lugano, Switzerland
Lugano, Switzerland is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world. With the Mediterranean climate of the Ticino region and the Swiss-Italian culture, Lugano is not your average stadt der Schweiz. Palm trees sway and colorful flowers...
Save Place
Fuhren, 3822 Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland
Standing at the bottom of Lauterbrunnen valley having just hiked down from Murren; having to peel off my sweater because the temperature change was so dramatic and staring at a dozen waterfalls cascading down the sheer face from thousands of feet...
Save Place
Oberseestrasse 36, 8640 Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland
After crossing the Limmat, our short walk through Zurich brought us to Linderhof Hill. It's a rather nice little park with a elevated spot that gave a wonderful view of the city.
Save Place
Lidostrasse 5, 6006 Luzern, Switzerland
in the Swiss city of Lucerne is one of the biggest transportation museums that I have ever seen! There are several parts to the museum including air, rail and sea transportation. What I found the very interesting are the walls that are made up of...
Save Place
Quai du Général-Guisan 34, 1204 Genève, Switzerland
C'est rigolo (it's funny) for such a serious game to become so playful.
