The pilot lands smoothly on runway 14. Welcome to Zurich. Fasten your seatbelt for a three minute long, fantastic roller-coaster ride like visit to Switzerland’s biggest city. Surprising hyperlapse images feature the view from a SWISS-Airbus cockpit or a train-ride. Part of the visual highlights are a quick jump inside the opera or a turbulent sea of fog around the prime tower. To lift the point of view high above the city, a customized drone has been used. For this project, a total amount of 90'000 images were shot. Visit helvetiabynight.com to check out 12 interactive 360° aerial panoramic images of Zurich.
