The winter season is well and truly upon us, and this means one thing and one thing only. Instagram addicts from every corner of the planet are starting to take snaps of the enchanting wintertime landscapes around them. It's a prime time of year to capture the magic and beauty created by winter's twinkling frost and icy blue skies. But which city ranks as the most Instagrammed winter location in the world?

The Swiss city of Bern of course! Wintertime is the perfect season to visit Switzerland's capital, with its photogenic architecture, breathtaking natural scenery and snow-dusted streets. Not forgetting that Bern's Old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offering an old world charm that can be captured in a single shot.

The study ranking the most Instagrammed winter locations was carried out by Focus Clinic, a laser eye surgery clinic which researched the frequency at which popular cities all across the world were hashtagged on the social media platform Instagram.

Bern amassed a frankly unbelievable 1,082,000 tagged photos, whilst the magical skiing destination of Aspen in Colorado came in a close second with 935,000. Perhaps unsurprisingly Norway's city of Tromso was tagged 768,516 times, taking third place; no doubt down to the fact the city is synonymous with the spectacular Aurora Borealis.

Bern was not the only instagrammable Swiss location to feature on the Top 10 list provided by Focus Clinic. The alpine village of Zermatt came in at sixth place with 400,215 tagged photos and the Swiss ski resort of Grindelwald ranked number ten with 149,836 tags. Switzerland is clearly a very photogenic nation in general, with three stunning winter locations placing within the Top 10.

But it's the stunning city of Bern which has featured in more Instagram posts than any other country in the world. So we think it's time to have a look at some of those beautiful winter-themed shots!

Did you know that Bern is officially the second slowest city in the world? But the locals are not slow in a negative way - they just know how to embrace the art of living and take their time to enjoy themselves. Being in a hurry or having hectic lifestyles are foreign concepts. So also for visitors, it's the perfect city to calm down and relax! #ilovebern #BERN #savoirvivre #rosegarden #rosengarten #visitswitzerland #myswitzerland #switzerland #inlovewithswitzerland #swisscapital #swiss #_bernstagram_ #madeinbern #igersbern #medievaltown #unescosite #unescoheritage #unescoheritagesite #unescoworldheritage #unescoworldheritagesite #worldheritageswitzerland #wonderful_places #switzerland_vacations #tlpicks ?? photo credit: @s4ndro.c
