Your wedding is the most special day of your life, and your honeymoon should be the most romantic trip you ever take.  There are a lot of destinations scattered around the globe that would fit the bill – Hawaii, Bali, New Zealand, Paris and Rome, to name just a few.  But just about everyone agrees that Switzerland is one of the most romantic places possible for a honeymoon, especially after a winter wedding.

There’s something about Switzerland’s cold, crisp winter air that encourages romance.  Couples strolling arm-in-arm through a charming little Swiss Alpine village like Zermatt are helping each other stay warm, but it’s a romantic way to do it.  And what’s more romantic than cuddling in front of a blazing fire, sipping a hot toddy, in one of the common areas of a cozy ski resort hotel?

Well, maybe there is one thing that’s more romantic.  Zermatt, Switzerland is located at the base of the spectacular Matterhorn – one of the most famous, iconic mountains in the entire world.  Among other things, this means the guest room windows of most Zermatt hotels offer stunning views of the Matterhorn and other nearby peaks.  The Matterhorn has to be one of the most majestic, romantic sights on the planet.  And when you’re honeymooning in Zermatt, it’s all right there in front of you.  You don’t even have to leave your Zermatt accommodation to see it – unless you want to!

But of course you’ll want to get out and about, because when you’re staying at one of the fine Zermatt hotels you’re also staying at one of Europe’s premier ski resorts.   If you’re a ski buff or snowboarder, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven if you spend your winter honeymoon in Zermatt.  Romance and superb winter sports too! 

Even if you and your new spouse aren’t interesting in skiing, you’ll still want to take a good long look around Zermatt.  Seeing the village streets, buildings and sidewalks coated with sparkling white powder makes your stroll through town turn into an almost enchanted experience.  And seeing the Alps in all their glory, covered with a blanket of freshly fallen snow, is a sight you won’t soon forget (and it’s very romantic, too).

It doesn’t have to be winter to honeymoon in Zermatt, but the mountains, snow and cold are perfect for winter romance.  Zermatt Accommodation can help you find the perfect honeymoon hotel.  Many of the village hotels offer special discounts and honeymoon packages to make things even more romantic.
