Perfect hotspots to explore in Switzerland during the honeymoon
Switzerland is such a pristine and stunning country. Planning your honeymoon around some of the most romantic spots will definitely make the trip more fun.
Breathtakingly stunning blue lake with snowcapped Alpine backdrop along with an adjoining city filled with medieval architecture. This is what describes Lucerne in the most simplistic terms possible. No Swiss vacation is complete without exploring Lucerne.
Ticino is also called a Mini Italy in Switzerland. Surrounded by dense green alpine forest on all sides, this quintessential city is a beauty left unexplored which makes it more special and definitely explore worthy while honeymooning.
3. St. Moritz
Engadin Valley has been immortalized for ages to come thanks to the beautiful Alpine resort town of St Moritz. Home to some of the finest hotels in the world, St Moritz is the epitome of the winter beauty of Switzerland.
The Bernese Alpine Village of Grindelwald is an all-year-round explore-worthy hotspot of Switzerland. The tiny yet stunning village is known primarily for a scenic backdrop, all year round exciting outdoor activities, and shopping.
If you want to include skiing and snowboarding in your honeymoon, regardless of the season, Zermatt is definitely the place. Summer skiing is a rarity offered only by this tiny alpine town.
Yet another Bernese town that is rich in traditional history and surrounded by forest, mountains all around. The stunning emerald lakes of Thun and Brienz only adds to its beauty.

Things to do while honeymooning in Switzerland
There are tons of activities to do as a couple in Switzerland. However, there are a few activities that are a must-try, especially if you are on honeymoon
1. Take a tour of the Lindt Chocolate house
Zurich is home to one of the best chocolate manufacturers in the world. No romance is complete without chocolate, so what can be better than spending a day touring the iconic Lindt Chocolate Factory in Zurich?
2. Enjoy a day of boat cruise at Interlaken
Lake Brian and Lake Thun are two stunning natural beauties and the pride of Interlaken. Cruising through the emerald blue waters while enjoying a gorgeously romantic date lunch/dinner cannot be experienced better anywhere else if not here.
3. Spend some cozy time at a thermal spa in Leukerbad
An age-old traditional geothermal hotspot that has been converted into a natural Bathhouse, Lukerabad Therme is a slightly offbeat yet fun activity to try out as a couple. Imagine spending a few hours soaking in warm waters of natural hot spring while catching up with the conversations and gossips you did not get a chance due to the busy wedding schedule.
4. Try tandem Paragliding at Lucerne
If you are an adventure buff and you want some adrenaline rush while honeymooning in Switzerland, then there can be nothing more exciting than paragliding around the breathtaking Swiss Alpine ranges and Lake Lucerne. Take a scenic train ride along the Swiss Alpines
5. Experiment with authentic Swiss delicacies
Switzerland heaven for food lovers. A gastronomical paradise, no tour of this country is complete without trying the authentic cuisines of Switzerland. From fondue to Polenta Braised beef, or the scrumptious Tartiflette and heavenly Lekerlis Biscuits with hazelnuts, there is an endless number of local delicacies waiting to be explored.

Best time to plan your honeymoon to Switzerland
Switzerland is a beautiful paradise that is stunning throughout the year. Also, the country is known to have a natural makeover every season, which is quite an interesting scenario.
If you schedule your honeymoon between the months of November and March, you need to be ready for some chilly winter times. The breathtaking alpines are covered in lush white snow, and the entire country changes into a blanket of a white soft coat. If snowboarding and skiing are something you love, this is the perfect excuse to get yourself the best snowboard jackets and book your roundtrip honeymoon tickets to Switzerland.
In case you are interested in a stunning panorama filled with flowers and beautiful greenery, then the summer months of June to August are the perfect time to explore Switzerland on your honeymoon.
If you have a tight budget to maintain and yet you want to see Switzerland blooming at its best, then May to June is the off-season you can choose for your honeymoon. The trails are devoid of any crowds and the hotspots are much more peaceful.
On a final note…
This guide is a simple yet comprehensive account of what a perfect honeymoon can be for a couple. If you truly want to make your honeymoon an ultimate romantic memory that’s unforgettable and very unique, this list is just what you need to follow.
