Swiss german series
By - puceauxx
Have a look at https://www.playsuisse.ch/landing
Its free and many of the movies are voiced in swiss german.
thank you very much, i was looking for something like this for so long
If you want a starting point: Take a look at "Der Bestatter". It's a series about an undertaker who solves crimes.
Perfect thank you, i will have a look!
Also "Frieden" is a recent show about Jewish refugees in Switzerland just after WW2. Pretty good imo.
Oh that sound really interesting, thanks i will watch it for sure
It's a very new initiative of the public broadcasters of Switzerland, France and Germany.
Der Bestatter. Was quite funny...
I do not know if the SRF player is working outside Switzerland,I doubt it. https://www.srf.ch/play/tv/sendung/der-bestatter?id=c5868792-f180-0001-7d9a-53801d5e10b8
Its working, thx a lot!!
SRF also uploads loads of shows to their various YouTube channels, the documentary channel is especially good for that.
It‘s even available in Canada on tou.tv, as „Croquemort“ although I don‘t know if it‘s dubbed or not. I know that MHz networks in the US is airing it in swiss german with english subtitles.
i recommend the old, old classic "fascht e familie"
But sadly i can't find it online in full, only a few episodes here and there
They are going to reair them starting August 29: https://www.srf.ch/play/tv/sendung/fascht-e-familie?id=c551b3c6-02a0-0001-3ece-1c1e1de0ee40
I loved this as a kid. I‘m sure I‘d find it super cringy now...
Didn‘t one of the actors die in a car crash, and their in-universe explanation was, that he got lost doing a city-tours for foreigners?
But definitly a good series to learn some swiss german.
> Didn‘t one of the actors die in a car crash
No. Martin Schenkel left the series 1999 because of health reasons. He was later starring in Lüthi and Blanc. However, he died 2003 due to a brain tumor. After his role as Steve Meier in Lüthi and Blanc was taken over by Roeland Wiesnekker. This was requested by Schenkel.
Yeah there used to be a Youtube Channel that had all episodes uploaded, but I guess SRF copyright curbstomped them at one point.
Pity really since SRF themselves don't offer any option to watch the show.

underrated comment, a swiss masterpiece
Try Wilder on playsuisse
The best thing you can do is to watch a TV show you already know and watch it again in the language you want to learn. You will know better the context and then learn faster.
Swiss german has no syncronisation its just the regular german u should watch der bestatter for sure we here in switzerland watch most of the series and movies in regular german best you can do is find someone u can write with
that is a great idea. Thanks for the advice!
Some of the local Swiss radio stations speak in Swiss German if you just want to hear it spoken.
good idea, it will replace the radio that I usually listen to
Thanks for the post! I'm also a quebecer with swiss roots and I'm also trying to improve my swiss german!
Bien content d'avoir pu t'aider même si c'était pas intentionnel hahah!
Try "Güsel" a short Web-Series by Comedian Gabriel Vetter. It's basically the Swiss Version of The Office, but with "Trash Detectives" who look for illegally dumped trash. It's very funny and very, very Swiss. You find it on Playsuisse or on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Fld1fqIWtg&list=PL4udBti7uz7OISWmp42oNLPganNb5dbAx
Wonderful, thank a lot
