When the last golden rays of the day touch the rooftops again ... ☀ Thanks for this great shot of Andermatt @ferienregion_andermatt @mikedzyngel

Allow us to introduce: This could become your new favourite place in the Lower Engadin @engadinscuolzernez in @graubunden – even though this would be somewhat unfair, as the whole valley is so beautiful. The little lake of Lai Nair is without question something special and is easily accessible on various hiking trails - whether from Scuol through the wildly romantic Clemgia Gorge or from Tarasp. In summer, some courageous souls even brave the dark water, which is coloured black from the surrounding peat bog. But don’t worry, this isn’t mandatory and you can simply admire the mountain lake from a distance, just like @noberson!

Can you see the Matterhorn in this photo by @lenalovesnature? The photo was taken from Fiesch @aletscharena_ch

Splish-splash through the watery cascade! Well, not quite, even though @juanngommes creates the impression that he was standing in the water when taking this lovely photo. If you visit the Giessbach Falls, there’s one thing you can be sure of: there are several highlights in store. Following a romantic cruise on the turquoise blue waters of Lake Brienz @madeinbern, you can either take Europe’s oldest funicular railways to the Grand Hotel @giessbach or make your way there on foot. A trail leads from the hotel to an impressive natural show - the waterfall.

One upon a time … a giant and a dwarf ... The Lobhörner towers and a hiker. The person in the foreground of this photo by @robjgrhm certainly looks very small. Hardly surprising since the tallest of the Lobhörner peaks in @madeinbern is a good 2566 metres above sea level. The peaks rise like jagged teeth and are atypical for the region, more reminiscent of the Dolomites. The smallest of the peaks, the Little Lobhorn, is easy for hill-walkers to climb. But if you want to conquer the Great Lobhorn, you will need to be an experienced mountaineer and climber - either way, the best place to start your tour of the area is the Lobhornhütte mountain lodge. Thanks for the photo!

Can you guess where we are here?... Exactly: Here you can see a traditional Valais timber house, nestled in an idyllic, natural sunny setting. To take this photo, @petit_angelus made the trip to La Sage, a little place in Val d’Hérens 1,700m above sea level @valaiswallis. Did you know that this valley is known for its strong and handsome Hérens cattle herd, whose members battle it out for primacy every spring? 🐄

Good morning Switzerland - you’re looking particularly magical today! And not just because of the lovely colours of the rising sun over the Fronalpstock @stoos.ch, as captured by @valentins__photography in his photo. The best way to reach the summit is by chair lift from Stoos. Once at the top, you can gaze across Lake Lucerne and, with a little luck, all the way to the Black Forrest.

Views like these make us fall #inlovewithswitzerland all over again! This is the kind of view you can expect when you take a cable car on @flumserberg_switzerland. The area is a true sports all-rounder, offering hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding and sledding - even in summer and winter. If you like to take things a little easier, you’ll enjoy the view of Lake Walen like @wirth.a.trip

#SwissViews: Pastel-coloured skies, nature in her autumnal glory, the gentle rattle of the @bernina.express... 🚂 This great photo by @adriana_cz shows Alp Grüm in @graubuenden. The Alp Grüm stop on the Rhaetian Railway is on the Bernina line between St Moritz and Tirano and is definitely worth a trip...

The working day is done! What about you? ;-) This is a perfectly ordinary autumn evening in the old town centre of St Gallen @sgbtourism – captured by @chrispix.ch. Located between Lake Constance and the Appenzell, this enchanting eastern Swiss metropolis has a wonderful pedestrianised old town full of bay windows, boutiques and cafés...

Alpenglow – when the mountains are so close you can almost touch them! @brightnwaser has captured this wonderful evening atmosphere to perfection. Here you can see the mountain massif of the @appenzellerland. From panoramic trails, exercise trails and barefoot trails to circular walks and multi-day tours, you’ll find it all here.

As we all know, Switzerland is cut off from the sea. And yet this fantastic photo by @dane72 shows how near we are to the sea, even if we’re talking about the “sea of clouds”. The vast expanse of clouds and mist form a mystical frame around the Niesen @madeinbern , while at the same time the rising sun bathes the mountains in a warm glow. Autumn should always be this beautiful. The good news is that you can enjoy views like this until 10 November. That’s how long the Niesenbahn funicular is due to run this year. The mountain-top hotel on the Kulm summit will remain open until then. So, what are you waiting for?

Where the Albula Valley meets the Engadin, where wonderful views of craggy gorges are guaranteed and where the red carriages of the @rhaetischebahn wind their way through the high mountains – there is happiness! At 2,312m above sea level, the Albula pass road winds its way through @graubuenden in @pontresina_engadin. We were blown away by this stunning photo that @kubitz_photography took not far from here. Can you see how the clouds are mirrored in the water? Thanks for the great picture!

Mornings be like… Imagine your day starting with a view like this. it’s difficult to imagine a more perfect location. All this and more is available in Switzerland, for example here at the Fluhalp mountain restaurant in @zermatt.matterhorn. It’s not hard to understand why @alliemtaylor is so happy to wake to a view like this of the Matterhorn. Where in Switzerland would you like to wake up? Thanks for the great video!

Mountain hut magic #SwissStyle! We were totally enchanted by this photo by @_fabiozingg, whether for the pretty hut in the foreground or the craggy mountains of @ferienregionuri. Whatever it is that makes this image so attractive, the location is the Sidelen Hut, the highest mountain hut in the Canton of Uri. Situated at 2,708m above sea level, the hut is run by the Gotthard Alpine Sports School in Andermatt. This means that you can spend the night here and breakfast against a fabulous backdrop the next morning.

No, this isn’t the set of a Harry Potter film! You’ll find this viaduct in the canton of @graubuenden. However, among fans of Switzerland and its railways, the Landwasser Viaduct is at least as famous as Harry and his friends. There are countless fabulous photos of the 65m high, 136m long railway bridge, each more impressive than the last. It is also regarded as a landmark of @rhaetischebahn. Around 22,000 trains cross the bridge every year, which corresponds to about 60 each day. Amazing! Just as amazing is this great picture taken by @_michellehe_ - thanks a lot!

Lights out, time for a fairytale! However the truth is that this photo by @andrea_furger_photography is not from a fairytale, but shows the famous holiday resort of @stmoritz in @graubuenden! Often regarded as an alpine playground for the rich and beautiful, St Moritz has a host of great highlights that you too will love. It actually has its own bucket list of 30 experiences you should not miss on your visit. a trip on Lake St Moritz essential at any time of year, whether for sailing in summer or to play cricket in winter. However, a visit to Muottas Muragi, which has one of the loveliest panoramas in Switzerland, is genuinely like something from a fairy tale. Thanks for the great photo!

What do hot thermal springs and river rapids have in common? The source of the River Tamina in @swissheidiland is also the site of the Tamina Gorge. The best way to get there is to take a gravel path through the woods from Bad Ragaz - just like @greglaczil, whom we’d like to thank for sending us this great photo. Once you’ve arrived in the gorge, you’ve basically reached the source: here you’ll feel the untamed force of the water as it emerges from the rock day in, day out at a warm 36.5 °C. Thanks for the photo!

Good morning Switzerland! The lovely photo by @michelphotography_ch shows Mürren. The former Walser settlement is located at 1650m above sea level above the Lauterbrunnen Valley and is the highest continuously occupied village in the canton of Bern @ilove_bern. If you want to get there, you’ll have to leave your car behind. An aerial cableway passes rugged cliffs and thunderous waterfalls on the way to the car-free village.

Two countries, one city. Where could that be? That’s right: we’re talking about picturesque Laufenburg @aargautourismus. The border separating Switzerland and Germany is a little harder to identify here, but the views are equally beautiful on both sides. This is demonstrated by this photo taken by @flomophotography from the banks of the Rhine.
