Seeking hides

Hi everyone, I'm new on here but have been living in Switzerland since 1998. I've seen lots of photography threads on here but I haven't found any on nature photography. What I'm actually searching for are active hides, I know Germany has them but I haven't ever heard of any in Switzerland. Can anyone help me?
P.S. No I'm not a peeping Tom

Re: Seeking hides

Do you mean something like a Hochsitz, an elevated stand/hideout typically used to hunt/snipe from, except your "gun" would be your telescope?

Have you talked to your local forest warden yet? If not contact Beat Steffen.

Re: Seeking hides

There's a hide by the Flachsee, near Unterlunkhofen, in Aargau.
But last time I walked by it was closed due to covid restrictions.

Re: Seeking hides

Went out to Altreu in Solothurn canton today and saw that they've installed a viewing platform by the river so that might be worth investigating. It's also a good place to see the storks on their nests in the village.
