Places in Switzerland to visit in July

Are you looking for some nice ideas for July in Switzerland? Enjoy this little selection of photos from outstanding spots which were taken in Switzerland in the month of July. Find all locations on the map and use the route planner to get there.

July is the best time to take amazing pictures at higher altitudes. You can do longer trips off the beaten paths. Beware of the crowds: July to mid August is also the busiest time of the year due to the Swiss school holidays, as well as lots of travellers and tourists everywhere in the country.

Hardergrat hike above lake Brienz

How about Augstmatthorn above Brienz? It’s always been one of the most famous hikes in Switzerland. You’ve probably seen the stunning ridges of the Hardergrat trail before if you are on Instagram. 

Turquoise mountain lakes

Discover deep blue and turquoise waters from melting glaciers at higher altitudes. Some examples are Blausee (Kandertal), Lac de Tseuzier (Valais)  or Caumasee (Films):

Five lakes in one hike – in Pizol

This is Wildsee, the second of five amazing lakes you can do in one hike between July and October.

Hidden lakes in Graubünden

Graubünden offers hundreds of hidden lakes. Crap Alv is just one of them. Other great but lesser known lakes are Lago di Leit. and Lej da Grevasalvas.

Classic views in central Switzerland

Hikes to Fronalpstock and Grosser Mythen are among the classics, and looking at the photos it’s easy to see why. If you are in Central Switzerland and you want to avoid the crowds on the weekend, a lesser known valley is Isenthal.

Do you love shooting roads? Nufenen Pass is a lesser known pass and it is worth a detour if you are in Valais, or in Ticino. Find more amazing roads in Switzerland here.
