I'm so inexperienced with heteropteta... I'll definately look more into it! Thanks for the help! Greets to the very beautiful Switzerland!

In my eyes Strictus has one black segment more on the antenna.

Maybe it could be a Holcostethus strictus?

It has been officially to exist in a nearby wetland!

Thanks again for your help!

Try Pentatomidae. Just some examples of Stink Bugs.
Quite a nice match, but your legs are darker, maybe too dark for Albipes.

Color of the legs and color and segmentation of the antennae are important and probably the only issue of your bug we can follow...

@bayucca
Thank you very much for your interest. Unfortunately I have no other photo. The insect after a couple of shots disappeared!

Any other picture to see the shape of the bug? I would also say Coreidae, but may also be Pentatomidae.
