Snow-capped mountain peaks, romantic alpine villages, world-class spas, verdant vineyards with cosy wine cellars and a lot of chocolate, - these are the perfect settings for Switzerland Honeymoon Packages. You will be spoilt for choice trying to choose a destination as the country is full of charming and romantic places that are ideal for honeymooners.
The Lauterbrunnen Valley is famous for its 72 striking waterfalls. It has inspired many poets and artists throughout the centuries: composers such as Richard Wagner, Felix Mendelssohn, Franz Liszt, and writer JRR Tolkien were all inspired by the dramatic landscape of the valley. The most spectacular are the Staubbach Falls near the village of Lauterbrunnen cascading from the height of almost 300 metres. Small villages dotting the valley are perfect for those looking for a tranquil getaway. Pack a picnic basket and head to a lush Alpine meadow.
The Swiss Riveria
One of Switzerland’s most popular romantic destinations, the Swiss Riviera on Lake Geneva provides everything for a luxurious honeymoon. Long walks along lakeside promenades, lake cruises on belle époque paddle steamers, train rides through the famous Lavaux vineyards for wine tastings, visits to Vevey, the chocolate capital of Switzerland to gorge on sweet delights. You can choose to stay in one of the plush hotels on the lakeshore or in a charming guesthouse in the vineyards.
For an unforgettable adventure, head to the picturesque historic town Château-d'Oex, home of the famous International Ballon Festival. You can have a romantic hot air balloon ride to admire the splendid views over the Alps. The landing location is never certain, which only adds excitement to the adventure.
With its fairy-tale like landscape, spectacular mountain peaks and more than 800 lakes, the Bernese Oberland offers romantic setting for a honeymoon all year round. In winter, you can snuggle up by a fire in an Alpine chalet sipping a hot chocolate, devouring rich fondue or hop in an outdoor hot tub. In summer, you can hike to a remote Alpine lake for a refreshing dip and a picnic.
