Switzerland lies at the heart of the Alps and is one of the most mountainous countries in Europe,
with 48 peaks over 4000 metres. The Swiss National Park is the oldest in central Europe, while the
Matterhorn (4478m) is one of the most recognisable silhouettes in the world. Verena Popp-Hackner (Austria) and resident photographer Michel Roggo documented Switzerland for Wild Wonders. Verena focussed on the Matterhorn under different light conditions, while Michel reveals the underwater life of the many fish species which breed in Switzerland's lakes, rivers and streams.
