Definition

A place where tourists, visitors, hikers might like to visit and take photographs. A place, often high, with a good view of surrounding countryside or notable buildings. Sometimes called a vista point or scenic area/point, lookout or overlook.

Some are identified by signs, many more can be identified from local knowledge or from your own visit and judgement.

This tag identifies a good view. Interesting objects or buildings themselves should rather be tagged with tourism=attraction. See also landmark=*


How to map

Set a node node at the viewpoint and add tourism=viewpoint.
