Most beautiful roads of Switzerland

Planning a road trip in Switzerland? Enjoy our updated selection of beautiful (say: instagrammable) Swiss roads. Most of them are road classics and have gone viral on Instagram. Meet the photographers on Instagram, and find all roads on the map.

Julier pass

This pass connects Engadin with the rest of Switzerland. It’s probably the most instagrammable road in Switzerland:

Julier pass (2284m asl) is open all year. In winter it’s the only road connecting Engadin with the rest of Switzerland.

Maloja pass

This is Maloja pass (1862m asl). It is open all year as well as it’s the only road to Bregaglia (Bergell) from Switzerland.

Drones are an excellent way to capture mountain passes. However there is no need for drones. Find the this perspective of the Maloja road on the map

Albula pass

In summer, Albula pass (2312m asl) is a great alternative to Julier pass. It connects the Albula valley with Engadin.

Don’t miss Lake Palpuogna (Palpouognasee) by the Albula road. Try to find some new perspectives as it’s a pretty famous photo spot.

Klausenpass

If you like street photography then Klausenpass (1948m asl) is for you. It connects the cantons Glarus and Uri.
