Where to Find the Best Views in Zurich

Where to Find the Best Views in Zurich

Zurich is an exceptionally beautiful place, and photogenic vistas are seemingly around every corner. That said, there are a few particularly worthy viewing points to seek out during your next trip to Switzerland’s largest city. From mountaintop cable cars to helicopter rides and lake cruises, here’s where to find Zurich’s best views.

Felsenegg

A lookout point on the edge of Zurich—and home to the canton’s only cable car—Felsenegg doesn’t just offer views of the city. From its summit, you can admire glittering Lake Zurich, the verdant Swiss countryside, and even the snowy Alps in the distance beyond.

Lake Zurich Cruise

Cruising on lovely Lake Zurich is a must when visiting Zurich. Kick back and relax while taking in picture-perfect views of the city’s waterfront, and spy landmarks such as the Grossmünster and the Zurich Opera House as you go.

Polybahn Funicular

The Polybahn Funicular, painted a cheery shade of red, doesn’t just make it easy to navigate Zurich’s considerable hills. As it wends its way from Central up to the Polyterrasse, it also offers opportunities to take in panoramic perspectives of the city.

Helicopter Tour

Of course, if it’s truly impressive views that you’re after, an aerial tour is the best way to admire Zurich—and beyond. Depending on the itinerary you select, helicopter tours won’t just soar above the city’s pretty hills and steeples—they’ll even go as far as Jungfraujoch, an Alpine pass that’s within flying distance of the city.

Charles’ Tower (Karlsturm)

If you’re planning an exploration of Zurich’s charming Old Town (Altstadt), combine your historical sightseeing with a bit of aerial splendor when you ascend to the top of the Karlsturm, the southern tower of Grossmünster church. The 187-step climb is worth the knockout views.

Lindenhof

A hill, a public square, and the former site of a Roman settlement, Lindenhof is one of Zurich’s top-draw attractions. Given its lofty position, the landmark is also blessed with killer views—find a comfortable bench and soak up the scenery.
