This pass connects Engadin with the rest of Switzerland. It’s probably the most instagramable 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.
This is Maloja pass (1862m all) It is open all year as well as it’s the only road to Bregaglia (Bergell) from Switzerland. Somebody asked why the Swiss can’t build straight roads. Would you know the answer? 😉
Of course drones are an excellent way to capture mountain passes. However there is no need for drones. Take your time to find the best perspective:
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 (Palouognasee) by the Albula road. Try to find some new perspectives as it’s a pretty famous photo spot.
If you like street photography then Klausenpass (1948m asl) is for you. It connects the cantons Glarus and Uri.
This pass takes longer, but is more fun than the Gotthard tunnel.
You’ve probably seen this place on Instagram before. Belvedère hotel is abandoned but always trending on Instagram.
This pit stop on your way from Thun to Interlaken is another famous photo spot. Find the exact location on the map.
