    I suspect it is easier to find the church that finding this guide... The photo is nearly 10 years old after all ...

    Yes, there is a rather nice organ in that church.

    time for a hint I guess.

    This city once had a big (relatively, of course) textile industry. At the end of the photo we see part of those buildnings.

    I will find a photo for you.

    Time for a hint perhaps?

    It's the stuff on the top of that hill which the town is mostly famous for. A king got shot there during a war. It is still uncertain whether it was the enemy who shot him, or one of his own soldiers; that king was rather unpopular in his won country ....

    Looks like a nice small village; I would guess Europe. The large building, is that a monastery?

    Looks more like cross-country skiing type of landscape.

    The "obvious" choice would of cause be Klosters in Switzerland, but I can't find the monastery on Google maps ...

    Interesting bunch of hints there - I will have to do some research tonight, I think. If someone else has an idea, feel free to give it a try. I am soon exhausting my stash of photos.
