Street View on local.ch
Google Street View facilitates navigation on local.ch and offers a better search-and-find function.
This is particularly useful for finding
- a company
- a small commercial business
- a restaurant
Such addresses/locations are available on local.ch in the Yellow Pages, which is why local.ch limits itself to these listings for the Street View function.
In the local.ch Yellow Pages, you have a choice of three views above the map:
- Road map
- Aerial view
- Street View
Simply click on Street View and local.ch will display the environment of the chosen search result in real-life pictures (provided Street View is available for the region).
To navigate, use the control function at the top left of the map or double-click the desired location on the map.
Street View: a feature of Google Maps
Street View is a Google feature for Google Maps.
As local.ch uses Google Maps, Street View can also be used at local.ch.
Street View can be handy when faced with any of the following questions:
- Where are parking spaces, and how many are available?
- Where can I unload/load up?
- Is the hotel located right on the lake or is it perhaps on a road with passing traffic?
- Where is the main entrance of a large building complex?
- Where is the nearest bus or tram stop?
More information on Street View is available here: Google Street View
If you wish to make your address – or the address of a property related to you – anonymous, Google has created an online form for this purpose.

local.ch closely follows the public debate about Street View and believes that Google meets all requirements and therefore the expectations of data protection.
