"Night Photography" Limmatquai Tip by Kathrin_E

Limmatquai, Zürich: 15 reviews and 26 photos

  Großmünster, Münsterbrücke and Helmhaus by night

Options for night photography along the Limmat banks are great. Many buildings and also the bridges are illuminated.

In case you have no tripod with you, no problem - there are low walls and railings everywhere along the river banks and the bridges which can be used as tripod substitutes. (Check for bird p** before leaning onto them, though. The seagulls are busy.)

I recommend, however, leaving for a night photo safari earlier than we did. Start right after dusk when the sky is still dark blue. In my photos it is already completely dark and the pics didn't turn out that well because of that.
