Snow clad mountains, shimmering lakes, cozy chalets, romantic panoramic restaurants, and spas that's what makes honeymoon in Switzerland the ultimate romantic holiday - and a honeymoon deserves nothing less!

Planning your honeymoon in Switzerland package just right gives you the opportunity to return with memories for a lifetime

The list of reasons to spend your honeymoon in Switzerland is endless. Every little town and village is so picturesque and offers so many experiences. To make the planning simpler, here are our top choices of honeymoon places that you can visit and things that you can do in Switzerland to make this time special.

1. Interlaken

The wallpaper worthy snow-capped mountains and lakes make Interlaken a perfect place to start exploring this country on your honeymoon in Switzerland.

Lose yourselves in the picturesque beauty of the Alps as you board some of the finest railways in the world using your Swiss Travel Pass and travel through the heart of the famous Jungfrau Region.

You can take an exclusive romantic boat ride on Lake Brienz by hopping on to the Donna Anna which is an original Venetian taxi boat. Of course, if you and your better half are the adventurous type, then maybe a faster ride on the Jetboat on Lake Brienz will be your thing. If you are adventure seekers, look no further. Interlaken is an adventure-heaven. From rafting, to skydiving or a romantic tandem paragliding flight, Interlaken offers it all.

Don't forget, you have the Alps all around you. Visit the Jungfraujoch for the most spectacular views over the Aletsch Glacier, the Grindelwald First for some fun activity (zipliner, mountain kart, trottibiking) and top off a day with a romantic dinner at the Panorama Restaurant atop the Harder Kulm gazing over the twinkling lights of Interlaken.

2. Lucerne

A romantic walk along the lake and a photo on the iconic Chapel Bridge will add to the charm of your honeymoon at Switzerland.

Visit the Lion Monument and Lucerne's Old Town - one of the prettiest and best preserved. Walk along its largely pedestrian only paths, visit the church of St Leodegar with its twin spires and have a romantic meal at one of the lakeside cafes.

In the evening, sail off into the sunset on a cruise and see the amazing views along the shore. You can also opt for a Lake Lucerne dinner cruise and raise a toast to your future with the best Swiss wines of course!

Central Switzerland also has some amazing mountain excursions. Visit Mt Titlis with its revolving cable car- Rotair, or Stanserhorn with a unique open top double decker cable car.

If you want to indulge in spa related activities look no further than Mt Rigi which has one of the best baths and spas in the country. Bathing in a fairy tale setting with a breathtaking view of the Alps will surely make your honeymoon in Switzerland unforgettable.

3. Zurich

Zurich - a vibrant city with countless museums, theaters, Opera house and Art cafes. Visit Altstadt (Old Town) and walk down the beautiful narrow cobblestoned lanes with countless cafes.

Zurich also has a vibrant nightlife centered around the Niederdorf area. You will be spoilt for choice between the numerous clubs, bars and cafes available.

Zurich has some really picturesque panoramic points with amazing views over the city. Make your way to Uetliberg or take the Dolderbahn to the Dolder recreational area. Once there, you can have a romantic meal at the legendary Dolder Grand Hotel.

4. Geneva

Geneva is so much more than International Organizations and Watches. It has Europe's largest Alpine lake and the iconic Jet d'Eau, the most distinctive symbol of the city.

This ancient maze of small streets and picturesque squares, are filled with homey cafés, restaurants, galleries, museums and historical buildings adorned with beautiful masonry facades.

A romantic day in the Lavaux valley vineyards along with lunch and wine of course, will add a real nice touch to your stay in Geneva.

The Parco Civico in Lugano is a 63,000 square metre park to wander around and gaze at the amazing flora and centuries old trees. Head to one of the mountains San Salvatore or Monte Bre for stunning views over the town.

You could also go to romantic lakeshore village of Morcote which was voted Switzerland's most beautiful village in 2016.

There's a mini-version of Switzerland located just 7min train ride away from Lugano known as Swiss Miniatur With more 120 models and attractions of entire country, you can boast to have completed entire honeymoon in Switzerland in one day.

A honeymoon in Switzerland is the perfect time to indulge yourselves and there is no better way to do that than with a helicopter ride from Zermatt

10. Leukerbad

Switzerland is known for its mineral springs and their healing powers. Some towns in Switzerland have become famous for their spas, which have channelized these springs into their pools and wellness centres.
