If a big part of your travel experience is photo opportunities, you’ll love Switzerland. There are memorable images around every corner. You can walk, drive, or hike to sights both familiar and new. Many will be breathtaking; many will be worth photographing; all will be committed to memory.
Mountains are ubiquitous. They serve as background for pastoral scenes and contemporary scenes such as this lovely harbor and landscaped fountain at Lake Maggiore. The mountains grow only more breathtaking as you visit the quaint villages which dot the landscape.
Even this cornfield with impressively tall stalks has a backdrop of mountains in beautiful Switzerland.

The Alps are breathtaking. Include a hike in your agenda, and you’ll see how lovely the countryside is when viewed from a mountain top, a cable car or at eye level. The trails accommodate all hiking styles and skills, and there’s no shortage of them. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it in Switzerland.
