The Alpine Honeymoon
Switzerland is sharply divided into the Alpine region and cities. The Alpine region is known for its climate, landscapes and mountains and the various activities associated with them such as mountaineering and skiing. The alpine regions offer tremendous opportunities for spending a memorable honeymoon. The four most important alpine places for honeymooners are Interlaken, Jungfrau, Matterhorn and St. Moritz.
Interlaken and Jungfrau
The most romantic journey is on the mountain railway through the snow clad mountains reaching a height of 11,300 feet. The views of the towering mountains from the rail journey are memorable. For the adventurous honeymooners, Interlaken offers skiing, paragliding, hang gliding and sky diving.
Jungfrau is a fabulous place for trekking at great heights. The Panorama way faces the first slopes of the Alps. A hand in hand trek here is a great way to bond amidst the towering mountains and the white snow.
The Matterhorn is a unique peak which has four steep faces equivalent to the four points on a compass. The base of the peak is home to Zermatt village. Honeymooners will love this village as it does not permit motorized vehicles to ply. Staying in a quaint chalet and getting driven in a horse drawn carriage is definitely a romantic way to spend a honeymoon.
Even before one reaches St. Moritz its history as a two-time host of Winter Olympics overawes anyone. The place is full of activities that make the newlyweds cuddle together such as toboggan riding. There are other activities such as winter walking trails and cross-country skiing which can keep the newlyweds together for a long time.
Lucerne is Central Switzerland’s most populous city. The city is perfect as a great honeymoon destination simply because of the sheer variety of activities available to the newlyweds. They can roam around in this motorized vehicle-free city with gay abandon. They can partake in the many music activities. They can walk across the 14th Century Chapel Bridge. They can take a ride on the funicular watching the sights along the way. They can also walk around the lake or cuddle together watching the stars in the Planetarium.
Zurich is the place for newlyweds who like night life and want vibrancy on their honeymoon. The city is home to a large number of clubs which are open late into the night and early morning. If honeymooners are interested in art and museums then Zurich is the place with more than 100 art galleries and 50 museums.
