At the end of December 2020, the cooperation between Switzerland Tourism and the operators of the image database “Swiss-Image” ended. Of course, media representatives will continue to have access to free image material from Switzerland.

From January 1, 2021, the images can be downloaded from on an interim basis.

The registration for the new database is uncomplicated and completed in a few steps. For your personal registration, please click on the button with red font color “Create media / tourism account” and fill in your personal data. Freelancers are asked to list current customers in the “Reason for registration” field. 

After registering, you will be able to choose from around 2,900 images and download them in high quality. We also ask you to observe the terms and conditions and to quote the copyrights of the images. Previously registered users of “Swiss-Image” will be automatically informed of the change in the picture gallery.
