Switzerland Pictures

Selection of Switzerland pictures, photos and photo galleries, photographed by professional photographer Rolf Hicker.

Switzerland is much prized for mountains, snow and cheese, but the country has much more to offer by way of history and adventure, not to mention scenery. Get out of Zurich and meet history in towns like Martigny and Glurigen. In the Rhone valley of central Switzerland, Martigny boasts a lively Roman Celtic 2500-year history and a fully restored amphitheatre.

Surrounded by the vineyards of the Valais Alps, Martingny is a great spot for hiking and biking- the Rhone Route, a national cycling trail, runs through the region, and the nearby hills reward hikers with spectacular views. Nearby Glurigen is an outdoors paradise all through the year for skiing, hiking, golf, and paragliding.

Switzerland is a tiny country, but there's a lot to take in. The best way to see it all is by train, so you can concentrate on the view. Vehicle trains carry cars and people through treacherous mountain passes, and offer a much safer means of travel during the winter months. ...More information below photos...
