The most photographed sights in the world

There is a selection of hot spots in the world that are not only considered absolute dream destinations for many people, but also end up in photos particularly often. Whether it’s the classic panoramic photo in front of a sight or a selfie with an impressive backdrop in the background – this is how you can capture memories of your holiday for eternity. The cameras of smartphones are now so powerful that you can take good mobile phone photos and thus also take excellent pictures of world-famous photo motifs.

But what are the places that are particularly often used as photo motifs? The lists have changed a bit with the introduction of Instagram, as it is now mainly a young target group that provides the data. At the same time, it has been proven that many of the buildings from the list are simply timeless classics.

1. The Eiffel Tower

The city’s landmark Paris has always been considered one of the most popular travel destinations in the world and also one of the most popular motifs for photos of all kinds. Curious, actually, when you consider that after the tower was built, Parisians could hardly wait for it to disappear from the skyline again. Originally, it was only supposed to be a temporary set-up for the world fair. For decades, there was a dispute between those who saw the tower as a perfect landmark and those who thought it destroyed the historic backdrop of Paris. In the end, however, the building came and stayed and is now one of the reasons for millions of tourists who visit the French capital every year and have their picture taken with the tower. By the way, also high on the list: the Louvre.

Big Ben & Parliament

In London , you can’t actually walk twenty meters without coming across some historical sight worth taking a snapshot. But it is and remains the huge tower at the Parliament with its bell, known as Big Ben, that is of particular importance to visitors to London. In particular, the overall scenery with the tower and parliament can be found not only in countless photos, but also in games, puzzles and film sets. By the way, Big Ben has been serviced and reworked in recent years, has been given its historic coat of paint and now shines in a new splendor – just the perfect reason to plan a trip to London again.

3. Central Park in New York

Not a historical building, but of special significance and probably already shown in films from every angle. The oasis in the middle of the island of Manhattan in New York City is not only the green lung of the city, but also a little more valuable for visitors to take photos than the famous Empire State Building. The visit can be easily combined with a relaxing afternoon in the hectic city. Fun fact: The park is larger in area than Monaco, where the next popular attraction for photos can be found.

4. The Casino of Monte Carlo

Both the casino and the Hotel Paris in Monaco are still found particularly often in photos today. Whether this is due to the exclusivity that emanates from the city cannot be said with certainty. But the suspicion arises that it could have something to do with Formula 1 and not least with James Bond, who made this hotel Paris known to the entire world in “Goldeneye”.

Dubai has not only become a popular travel destination in recent years, but with its modern backdrop and many highlights for the eye, it also offers many motifs for a good photo. Probably the most popular motif in the city, however, is without question the Burj Al Arab. The only seven-star hotel in the world not only knows how to convince with almost intangible luxury, but also with a unique architecture, which comes into its own especially at night.

6. Santa Trinità dei Monti in Rome

It’s a name that even visitors to Rome might not mean anything at first glance. No wonder, many of the churches have these beautiful old names, but no one can really assign them – but which one is so famous that it makes it onto the list of the most popular photo motifs? The explanation is relatively simple – it is the church that can be found at the top of the Spanish Steps. The entire area is a central point for Rome and its travelers and one of the most popular photo motifs in the entire world.

7. Gardens by the Bay in Singapore

Singapore is still an exotic destination for European travellers, but it is one of the most popular destinations of longing, especially in Asia. The city itself is a cultural highlight where the most diverse cultures of Asia mix with each other. One of the city’s flagships – and thus also one of the most popular photo motifs in Asia – are the Gardens by the bay. The artificial gardens with their high hiking trails, artificial gardens, fountains and works of art are an eye-catcher for every visitor and have rightly earned their reputation as one of the most beautiful sights in the world.
