La Suisse des lacs

( Season 2 )
A land of mountains, Switzerland also counts some 1,500 lakes. A programme in four chapters, a journey through the Swiss lakes and down the seasons.


Summer as the water flows

The Trois-Lacs-Jura region and its Lakes Bienne, Morat and Neuchâtel; Lake Maggiore, between Switzerland and Italy; Lakes Zurich, Brienz and Thoune in the Bernese Oberland... In summer, water attracts all with an unconditional love of their country's lakes.

Directed by: Donat Hofer, Éliane Kerschbaumer (season 2, Switzerland, 2022)
Autumn as the water flows

In the autumn Switzerland's lakes don the most vibrant shades of gold. Whether on the lakes of the Bernese Oberland, Lake Maggiore or in the Trois-Lacs-Jura region, everyone lives in harmony with the season.

Winter as the water flows

In the Bernese Oberland, above 800 metres winter seems suspended with no trace of snow on the shores of Lake Brienz. Markus continues to work wood in tune with tradition. On Lake Zurich, Manuel is in search of Asian clams whilst Angelo ensures the water taxis run to schedule.
