Visitors love to take pictures in Zermatt’s Schwarzsee, a picturesque lake. Here are five reasons why:

1.) Reflections: Schwarzsee is a peaceful, beautiful lake that reflects the surrounding mountains, notably the Matterhorn, in a breathtaking fashion. The best times to take pictures of you and these reflections in the background are at daybreak and dusk.

2.) Reachable: Schwarzsee is easily accessible by taking a short hike from Zermatt. This makes it a popular destination for visitors who want to experience the beauty of the Swiss Alps without too much effort.

3.) Mountain scenery: The stunning mountain scenery that surrounds Schwarzsee offers a fantastic opportunity for landscape photography. Wildflowers, woodlands, and alpine meadows abound in the vicinity.

4.) Wildlife: Marmots and ibex are among the alpine creatures that call Schwarzsee home. Photographers can take pictures of these creatures in their natural settings, which gives their photography a new perspective.

5.) Beautiful Historic Chapel: Schwarzsee is home to a stunning old chapel that makes for an unusual and fascinating photographic subject. The chapel’s setting on the lake’s edge provides a lovely background for your family, couple, or solo photoshoot.
