Why Should you see a bunch of Switzerland photos? Because it’s beautiful!

If there is one word to that comes to mind when thinking of Switzerland, it is manicured. Everything is flawless. Switzerland is clean, it’s pretty and everything is arranged to perfection. The cows are cooperative when taking their photos and the mountains frame each scene in front of you. The houses dot the dot the landscape in cute little rows as rolling green hills invite you to sing and twirl through them like Julie Andrews did in the Sound of Music.

Don’t take our word for it. Even the Swiss know how perfect and manicured they are. Check out this hilarious spot from Swiss Tourism.


One of our favourite ways to give our readers and followers real time updates throughout our trip, is to share photos through Instagram. We snap photographs on our iPhone, give them a quick edit with our favourite apps and then send them out to our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook Feeds. It’s amazing!

Before we go further though, we’d like to thank Kirsten Alana for all of her advice and help with Instagram. If it weren’t for her, we’d still be using the instagram filters and putting frames around our photos. She speaks around the world on Instagram photography and there is a reason that she’s considered one of the top iPhone photographers out there. She knows here stuff!

Dave will be bringing out an amazing photo story of our time in Switzerland with the shots he took on his Canon 5D MkII, but for now, enjoy our round up of Switzerland photos on Instagram. They were taken in Chronological order so you can feel and see exactly what we saw each day in the country.

      Hi Jarmo, I didn’t remember Switzerland being that beautiful either. We were there in 2002 and I recall it being nice, but this time was incredible. I think it is Interlaken area. Interlaken is beautiful and the time of year was nice too. Sunny with enough snow on the mountains to make everything more striking than before.

    These photographs are amazing…impossible even, I would love to be as talented as you. You’ve really captured the natural, wholesome beauty of the countryside.

    1. debndave Post author

      Thanks so much Fiona, you can easily photograph like me. It’s all done on the iphone with apps and practice. Dave is the photographer in this relationship, but I’ve been taking the iPhone photos and find it to be fun and rewarding.

    Amazingly beautiful photos of Switzerland!
    I think this is my favourite country so far and indeed it is precious material for photographers. Two years ago I took almost the same beatiful picture of Interlaken :)

    1. debndave Post author

      Amazing! Interlaken is quite striking isnt’ it. When we were hiking through the area, I was surprised just how beautiful it was.

      Thanks Debbie, we’ve been really impressed with the quality of iPhone photos too. So much so, we’re buying another iPhone and ditching our snappy cameras.

  5. Arti

    These are just stunning captures!! Switzerland is one of the dream destinations, not just for me but for most Indians!!! Thanks for sharing these pics :)

    1. debndave Post author

      Thanks Arti, I think that you are not alone, it’s a dream destination for many, including us. We feel very lucky to have been able to visit it.

    1. debndave Post author

      Thanks Kristen, wait until you see all the photos taken on the DSLR. If we can get this with an iPhone you’re going to love the real camera:)

    I have never been to Switzerland other than a layover during my journey to France and seeing these pictures makes me regret not leaving the airport. Whenever I see images of castles like the Chillon Chateau, it always amazes me at the skill of architects back then in a world devoid of electricity and internet. It’s truly a feat, I mean that thing is basically hovering on the water!

  7. Elle of Solo Female Nomad

    My goodness! Those photographs are incredible! I went to Switzerland as a child and long to return. To me, its a perfect destination; beautiful mountains and landscape. I only wished that it was cheaper to travel within the country!

    1. debndave Post author

      Hi Elle, it is quite perfect there. The countryside is picture perfect, the trains run on a perfect schedule and the people are very prompt and perfect. Perfect is a perfect word! Yes, it’s a pricey destination but so beautiful and filled with so much to do. Definitely a trip worth saving up for.

  8. Jemma

    Great photos of landscapes, cities and other sceneries! Perfect for people who love calm, relaxing and romantic places. Elle said she wished it was cheaper to travel within the country. Is it really expensive to have a vacation in Switzerland? I also wish to travel there. :)

    1. debndave Post author

      Hi Jemma, thank you. Unfortunately yes, it is expensive to travel in Switzerland. It’s one of those trips that you hav to save up for, it’s beautiful though.

  9. Susan@Travel Universally

    Wow, these instagram pics are so unique , though I love to capture the moments in my Cam, Sometimes the vintage appeal of instagram make the scenes more unique. I wish if we all could have the eyes with camera effects to enjoy such moments everytime.

    1. debndave Post author

      So True Susan. We still love taking photos with our SLR and Dave is putting up a Switzerland photo round up from his Canon, but it is fun to play with Instagram, it’s also a great way to share the moment instantly.

    Hate to be a buz kill here but visited Switzerland and didn’t care for it much.
    1. Geneva — A budget room costs over $300. The buffet on the local cruise consists of all you can eat horse meat.
    2. Meals — from Geneva to a town near Interlocken, everywhere we went they would not serve food except during very specific hours. So if you want to eat from like 1pm to 7pm you have to cross the border.
    3. Poor Transit system — Took train from Berne to Interlocken. Train stopped at some small mountain town an hour or so away. We were told that it might take 10 minutes or 4 hours for the train to be repaired and it would simply start moving when fixed so if we got off the train , it was at our own risk. We did.
    Entered train station. Very dirty and staff very unfriendly. Crossed over to restaraunt. They told us no food for four more hours. Nothing. Just drinks.
    4. Arrived in Interlocken. Now it was night thanks to delay. Never saw morning there.
    Nothing to do. Very dismal little town.
    5. Went from France via train to Geneva and then on to Bern to Basel, Swizerland.
    Saw nothing much impressive. Just OK.

    Again, if you love it, wonderful but those tihnking about going should make sure this is where they want to go.

      Have a great time. Switzerland is definitely a beautiful country. We weren’t expecting the Alps to be so striking. They take your breath away.
