Switzerland romantic guide: Best places to visit

#1 Switzerland romantic guide

Zermatt

The small village located high in the Swiss Alps was once completely unknown to the world. It began becoming more and more famous in 20th century. Right now, it’s a vibrant resort and one of the most popular places to visit in Switzerland.

Can you imagine anything more romantic than spending a holiday with someone you love surrounded by the beautiful mountains? Just take a look at the photo below- it says more about Zermatt than a thousand words.

Apart from hiking, trekking and all the other activities, you can just simply relax in this town. There are many spa hotels in Zermatt, the one we were staying at was Best Western Plus Alpen Resort Hotel. It is centrally located, beautifully designed and luxurious. The best part of it is that most rooms have an amazing view of Matterhorn, the most famous Swiss mountain.

Speaking of Matterhorn: it is well-known all over the world. The pyramid-shape mountain became popular because of… Toblerone! This Swiss chocolate brand made Matterhorn part of its logo.

You can climb up to the top of this mountain but it’s very challenging. If you want to get the best view of Matterhorn, take a ride to the top of Matterhorn Glacier Paradise by a cable car.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Zermatt is a car-free town. You can only get there by a train. If you are traveling by a car, park it in Täsch and take a train directly to Zermatt.

Furka Pass

Be like James Bond and take your lover to the most iconic road trip ever!

Drive through this high (2,429 metres (7,969 ft)) mountain pass and see the Rhone Glacier Ice Grotto on the way.

Furka Pass is a great place for all the thrill lovers and adventure seekers. You don’t need to have outstanding driving skills to go there but think twice if you are afraid of heights. The road is sometimes very steep and winding.

#3 Switzerland romantic guide

Lausanne

Lausanne is probably one of the most romantic places in Switzerland.

Why? First of all: it’s situated in the French-speaking part of a country. We all know that French is a language of love…

Secondly, the city it surrounded by a beautiful nature. It is located on the shores of Geneva Lake. The mountains that you can see on the photo below are called Jura and are part of Alps.

Last but not least, Lausanne has a beautiful Old Town with many amazing monuments to see.

If you are looking for a good place to stay in the city, check out Best Western Plus Hôtel Mirabeau. It is situated in the heart of Lausanne and has great, high-end rooms. If you are staying somewhere else, at least go to the Mirabeau Restaurant. It has outstanding food, one of the best we had in Switzerland!

Rhein Falls

Rheinfall is European equivalent of the Niagara Falls. It is located on the border between Germany and Switzerland.

This biggest plain waterfall in Europe is heartbreakingly beautiful! If you want to propose in Switzerland, it’s probably the best place to do so :).

#5 Switzerland romantic guide

Winterthur

If you and your lover don’t like the hustle and bustle of a big city and prefer staying far away from the crowds, Winterthur is your place to go. This lovely city is located very close to the Rhein Falls and Zurich.

You won’t get bored in Winterthur- there is a lot of things to do in the city. Our personal favorites are Old Town, Hegi Castle and Technorama. The last one the biggest science center in Europe. You can spend hours in this interactive museum, getting to know the physics, mathematics and biology.

We spent a wonderful weekend in Winterthur, one of the reasons why our time there was so great, was our hotel Best Western Hotel Wartmann am Bahnhof. This three star hotel turned out to deserve at least 4 stars. Everything about it was spotless, we can’t imagine better place to stay in Winterthur than at Wartmann’s.

#5 Switzerland romantic guide

Zurich

The biggest city in Switzerland cannot be missed while visiting the country.

Zurich is an amazing destinations for lovers. It is completely different than all the other European cities. It is located by the lake. In the summer you can walk around the beautiful Old Town and than relax on of the city beaches.

The public transport in Zurich is perfect, be sure to choose the hotel that is situated close to the bus/ train stop (like Best Western Hotel Spirgarten that we have been staying at).

#6 Switzerland romantic guide

Walensee Lake

Switzerland truly is a land of mountains and lakes. If you want to relax, unwind and spend a romantic time with your lover, visit Walensee.

It’s not as popular as other lakes and it’s equally beautiful as Lucerne or Geneva.

  1. You are so right!
    We were there earlier this year as well and would love to go back someday. I wish we could have been there the same time to see you guys.
    We visited a few other town as well but did not see a couple of the places you mentioned in this article so… maybe next time. I would especially like to see those waterfalls you talk about.

  2. Hi Karolina and Patryk
    This was an incredible list. Switzerland has always been on my bucket list. This post was just another inspiration to cross it off the list as soon as possible. 🙂
