Switzerland is home to many beautiful towns that make for a memorable honeymoon destination. With the beautiful lakes and the awe inspiring mountain views, the small country is packed with romantic getaways. Here are the best and most beautiful destinations that you should consider.
The world-famous ski resort is at the heart of the one of the most scenic areas of Switzerland. Boasting great views, five-star accommodation aplenty and some of Switzerland’s best shopping and restaurants, it’s an all-year round destination, not just one for skiing. You can ski down its slopes at night, take a ride on a horse-drawn carriage, or take in the mountain views on the famous Bernina Express.
Who says a honeymoon has to be all sunshine and sandy beaches? Zermatt definitely can’t offer you that, but it’s still one of the most spectacular and most beautiful destinations. Sitting in the shadow of the famous Matterhorn, the car-free village has great and unique places to stay, as well as some fine restaurants to dine out in and enjoy your time in luxury. If you’re wanting a more action packed honeymoon, there’s skiing, hiking and many other adrenaline pumping activities to enjoy in this land of snow and ice.
Nestled between two beautiful lakes (Lake Thun and Lake Breinz) and surrounded by the Jungfrau mountains, Interlaken is a super spot to immerse yourself in the best that Switzerland has to offer. From hiking in the mountains, taking a boat out on to the two lakes or just enjoying the refreshing mountain air, there’s plenty for you to fall in love with at Interlaken.
Spending your honeymoon in Ticino brings a little bit of Italy to your Swiss adventure. Ticino is the capital of Lugano, the canton that sits on the Swiss-Italian border and there is the unmistakable laid back feel of the Mediterranean all around the city. There’s also heaps of culture here (the castles of Bellinzona are a must-see), a gorgeous lake and not to mention some great local wines to enjoy.
Stein am Rhein
Take your loved one to Stein am Rhein, “the Jewel of the Untersee”, an archetypal Swiss village that is sure to charm you. The small town’s historic centre is a collection of semi-wooden medieval houses painted in exuberant colours and decorated with elaborate facades. As is to be expected, life is slow here but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to do. You can take a trip to Werd Island, a popular sun-bathing spot for locals and tourists alike.
Sitting at the opposite side of Lac Léman to Geneva, Montreux is a tranquil resort town where the pace of life is always nice and slow. One of the highlights is walking along its long lakeside promenade from the centre of town to the idyllic Chillon Castle, the most beautiful castle in the whole country that sits perched on a small island on the lake. Take long walks in the countryside or sip wine from the Lavaux Vineyards, where some of the best wine in Switzerland originates. For a romantic getaway for your honeymoon, few places match Montreux.
