Thank you for the ID!
To answer your question, I was in Switzerland on vacation. I had never seen any spiders like it back home and decided to take a picture.

Welcome to Project Noah, Yasmeen!
Bahrein and Saanen are quite of a distance, what are you jogging in the Berner Oberland, next to my area??

Should be "our" common garden spider or Kreuzspinne in Switzerland.
