Most instagrammable places in Zürich

You love Instagram photography, and you happen to be in Zürich? Here are some classic viewpoints you don’t want to miss in the city. Net walking time is less than half an hour. Click on the pictures for locations and directions.

Grossmünster tower

Let’s start off with the classic view from Grossmünster tower.

On clear days bring your zoom to capture the mountain skyline.


From Grossmünster go to the bridge. You’ll be rewarded with this view.

General Guisan-Quai

Classic view from General Guisan-Quai. Shoot the reflections in the morning or at night.


Bürkliplatz is where lake life begins.

By the way the most touristy (but not instagramable) spot here is the flower watch.


Look twice: Paradeplatz has more to offer than the big banks’ head quarters.


Shoot & shop in the old town


Enough of shopping? Walk back to Limmat. 

Street and river views from the old town.


Lindenhof is not only one of the oldest places. It’s also a classic spot

for every first-time visitor


Neumarkt is not exactly on our route. But if you have some 10 minutes to spare, make a little detour in the streets of Niederdorf.


Would you like to give your shots some perspective? How about the love locks at Mühlesteg.

Jules Verne Bar

Why not finish off your photo tour with some drinks with a sunset view from Jules Verne Bar (click here to see the video), Uraniastrasse.

The city has a lot more to offer than the old town for sure. Head over to the map and use the search 😉
