Welcome on my plates-spotting homepage!
On my page you will find pictures of licence-plates. All were taken in Switzerland by myself.
My name is Christian and I live in the eastern part of Switzerland near Zürich. I was born 1971, since 1995 I am married and I have 4 children. I work since over 20 year near Zürich for a technical trade company.
My hobby is to take pictures from foreign license plates in Switzerland. In my collection I have over 10'000 pictures from over 100 countries/territories.
How I do it
I started in 2009 with my collection. In last few years I invest many hours in this passion. I try to go on tour every Saturday morning and I visit many of the places that I mentioned under ‘Spotter-Places’. Every day I visit on my way to work the rest area ‘Rastplatz Kemptthal’. There are always a lot of foreign trucks and cars to note. Once all two week I visit long-duration-parking on the airport in Kloten. Three or four time in year I go to Geneva for plate-spotting. There are always many rare plates. In the summer month there are many plates from Arabic-countries. Every time in Geneva I can note over 40 countries in one day! So all pictures in my main-collection were taken in Switzerland and so also all pictures on this page! Weekly I create a protocol about my logs. You find this under 'Statistics'.
For most common series I have load up max. 3 pictures. From these series I have usually many more pictures in my collection.
For countries with many different codes I create a separate code-register with all code-pictures from my collection.
