5 BEST Instagram spots in Geneva plus a hashtag tip

Geneva is indeed beautiful and you can definitely capture every spot in the best of frames. Yet there are 5 best Instagram spots Geneva that you will cherish for your lifetime. They are the same places that you have included in your itinerary but just with a twist to make them Instagram perfect.

Broken chair

The Broken Chair at Place des Nations is made up of 5.5 tons of wood and stands 12 meters high. That definitely makes it one of the popular landmarks in Geneva. The best spot to click a picture of Broken Chair is not right in the front of the chair. It is actually from a square opposite the back side of the chair.

From there, the Broken Chair, country flags and United Nations- all can be seen in one linear position. It is even better if the photograph is taken in summers when fountains are working. One can also capture the reflection of the broken chair in the puddle of the water with a perfect blue sky as the backdrop. Check it out yourself.

St. Pierre Cathedral

Well this is the most visited site in the old town and yes the Cathedral is very beautiful. Again, the best shot is not from the front but taking an angular turn on the pathway capturing the Cathedral from the side. Thus, one can also get the green rustic tower in the frame making it Instagram perfect.

Also, for another photo opportunity, climb the stairs of the Cathedral for just 5 CHF per adult and enjoy a 360 degree view from the top, with the lake on one side and the mountains on the other.

Jet d’eau

Well well well! One cannot miss Jet d’eau in Geneva. It is definitely the most visited place in the city. Infact in summers, one can also take a boat ride around the fountain in the public transportation ticket. There is no short cut to capture oneself with this legendary figure of jet water, unless if this article is missed.

Get onto the wall that leads to the fountain, stand upright, challenge the frame to get the whole fountain and bang! One just got Instagram lucky!

Carouge is the southern part of Geneva known for its Sardinian architecture and best of Swiss handicraft makers, Swiss wine sellers and Swiss chocolate makers. A kid friendly place often hosts street food festivals and music festivals and is an unrivaled option for a good summer afternoon in Geneva. Carouge is hence decorated in its purest of joy and rawest of ecstasy. I don’t advocate for this Instagram picture, just publishing it for it to prove on its own.

Parc des Bastion

If it’s autumn, a stroll in the parks is a must. And what could be better if one can manage an Instagram picture as well. Parc des Bastion not only boasts of an informative and amazing Reformation Wall but also of picturesque boulevards. During autumn when dried leaves spread a red carpet for the wanderers, it is surely an Instagram way to get lost.
