Should I go on Honeymoon in Zermatt? Of course!

Romance is at the heart of Zermatt, from the passion it has inspired in explorers to the traditional wooden chalets that make the town ideal for a lovers’ stroll.

Why Zermatt is a perfect honeymoon destination…

Skiing is a love affair of its own and you may well have picked your life partner based on this shared passion. So why not celebrate the start of your marriage on the slopes of the best ski resort in Switzerland?

Just imagine your romantic ski trip: breakfast cooked for you, cuddles on chairlifts, skiing side by side, lunch in a cosy mountain restaurant, stolen kisses, holding hands in the lift queue, romantic dinner, wine by the fire and stunning scenery to fall asleep to.

Zermatt is a destination you’ll always remember

On the mountain, there are some of the best restaurants found in any ski resort – perfect for a long and leisurely lunch. And great options for eating doesn’t stop once you leave the hill, as in the historic town you’ll find endless dining options including two with Michelin stars.

Zermatt is not just about skiing. There are so many activities to try when you’re not skiing, whether you’re ice skating, snow shoeing or taking the Gornergrat train.

Honeymoon accommodation in Zermatt

Having a romantic location to honeymoon is one thing. Finding the perfect place to stay is another. Ed and Suzanne from Matterhorn Chalets can help and recommend idyllic properties for you to stay in.

Chalet Ulysse is a traditional ‘chocolate box’ chalet with stunning views and a log fire to spend a romantic evening by. This is a serviced chalet, with a team to look after you at breakfast and dinner.

Although typically for groups of 8-12, there is a separate self-contained ground floor apartment, perfect for a couple.

If friends or family are joining you on your trip, you could consider Chalet Banja or Binna, and enjoy a wellness centre, complete with sauna, gym and pool.

Both of these chalets can be booked with a full catering service or if you prefer to dine out and be left to enjoy your first days as a married couple in complete privacy then you can book them as self-catered.
