The Most Beautiful Photo Spots in Zurich

On the Grand Tour of Switzerland, travelers discover the most beautiful places in Switzerland. What’s more, the official Photo Spots guarantee the best snapshots of this adventurous trip.

In front of the Rhine Falls, overlooking Einsiedeln Abbey, or with a view of the picturesque Old Town in Rapperswil: the official red Photo Spot frames can be found all along the route of the Grand Tour of Switzerland.

If you stand behind the distinctive red frame, you are guaranteed to end up with a fabulous souvenir photo – for the official Photo Spots are placed in such a way that they present the perfect view of the top highlights along the route. In addition, the photo frame provides information on the special features of each location.

The Zurich section of the Grand Tour also has three of these red frames. Their location is indicated by means of brown Photo Spot signposts.
