These Are The Top 10 Most Insta-Worthy Places to Visit in Winter

Get that Instagram feed rolling in these gorgeous winter wonderlands across the world.

Cities draped in a blanket of white, the sound of carols wafting through the air, festive markets and winter festivals in full swing, and in some places, the aurora borealis make an appearance across the sky.

Winter truly is a magical time of the year.

For an experience that feeds the eyes as much as it does the soul, we have a list of the most Instagrammable cities and national parks around the world in winter.

Český Krumlov, in Bohemia’s deep south, is one of the most picturesque towns in Europe. It’s a little like Prague in miniature – a Unesco World Heritage Site with a stunning castle above the Vltava River, an old town square, Renaissance and baroque architecture, and hordes of tourists milling through the streets – but all on a smaller scale; you can walk from one side of town to the other in 20 minutes. There are plenty of lively bars and riverside picnic spots – in summer it’s a popular hang-out for backpackers. It can be a magical place in winter, though, when the crowds are gone and the castle is blanketed in snow. ・・・ 🇨🇿 Cesky Krumlov . Location: #CeskyKrumlov #czechrepublic

10. Grindelwald, Switzerland – 149,836 photos

More popular than the Northern Lights in Tromsø is the city of Bern which snags the top spot for the most popular location to Instagram when winter rolls in.

Bern is the capital city of Switzerland – the country that undoubtedly boasts a wealth of photo-perfect landscapes in winter, given that it makes an appearance three times on this list. If you decide to hit Switzerland in winter, visit the trio of Bern, Zermatt and Grindelwald and get your Instagram feed rolling.

While most of the cities featured in the top ten are tucked within Europe, three places in the US made the list: Aspen (Colorado), Yosemite National Park (California) and Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming).
