According to legend, Charlemagne discovered the graves of the city’s patron saints Felix and Regula and had a church built as a monastery on the spot. You can climb all the way to the top during opening hours and get one of the prettiest views of Zurich.

2. Uetliberg

This is just short drive from the city and you’ll have to conquer a small climb, but reaching the summit of 870m is worth it. On a clear day the view of the city and the opportunity for a perfect Instagram shot is too good to miss.

3. Augustinergasse

This car-free area is one of the prettiest narrow streets in Zurich. With many well-preserved, colourfully painted bay windows, it provides an insight into the history of the city. Grab a picture at night when it is quiet for the best effect.

While Lake Zuirch is possibly not as well known as Lake Geneva, it is a stunning place to stroll around and get away from the busy city. During the summer months it offers an absolutely gorgeous walk and endless opportunities to take Zurich Instagram shots.
