5 Romantic Road Trip Ideas for Honeymooners to Explore Switzerland, the Alps & beyond

Updated: May 23

Paris has long been depicted by Hollywood as the "city of love", and this association is not solely attributed to Audrey Hepburn's portrayal in "Paris When It Sizzles" (1964). The city's rich history, stunning architecture, fashionable populace, and exceptional cuisine are compelling enough reasons. However, Paris is not the only European city that comes to mind for newlyweds when contemplating a honeymoon destination. For your upcoming anniversary trip, we would like to suggest a romantic getaway in Switzerland, with a focus on the breathtaking Alps and beyond. You can choose to explore the Swiss Alps, relax on the serene shores of Lake Como, or even combine both destinations for an unforgettable honeymoon experience. The key to a fantastic honeymoon has always been to focus on making the journey itself the destination. Instead of fixating solely on the end goal, couples who prioritize enjoying the travel experience together often find themselves creating the most lasting and cherished memories. By savoring every moment of the journey, from the excitement of planning to the actual traveling, couples can build a deeper connection and appreciation for each other that will last far beyond the honeymoon itself.



Fun fact: Audrey Hepburn herself tied the knot at the charming chapel on Bürgenstock, Switzerland back in 1954. Follow in her footsteps and travel in comfort from Paris to Zurich on the French high-speed trains, which will get you there in just four hours. The secret capital of Switzerland is the perfect starting point for a fantastic honeymoon in the Swiss Alps.

Switzerland is always an excellent choice for honeymooners. It's hard to find another place where you can immerse yourself in the unspoiled beauty of alpine nature, enjoy breathtaking scenery, witness awe-inspiring waterfalls, stay in luxurious hotels, and indulge in dreamy mountain resorts. Here in the Swiss Alps, you can experience all of these things in one unforgettable trip. Our driving tour package offers the most scenic route through the Alps, where you can travel side by side with your partner in the latest supercars of your choice, creating unforgettable memories along the way.



If you're considering a honeymoon in Italy, we have an exciting suggestion that will make your trip unforgettable. Start your journey in Zurich, Switzerland and take the scenic route through the most stunning alpine passes of the Swiss Alps to reach the serene and relaxing atmosphere of Lake Como on our Switzerland 2 Lake Como Driving Holiday.

This exciting driving experience through the Alps combined with the romantic setting of your luxury hotel on Lake Como will create a special experience that every newlywed couple will cherish. We highly recommend staying at the beautiful 5* Superior Grandhotel Tremezzo, an Art Nouveau palazzo-style hotel with modern chic decor, breathtaking gardens, and a floating pool on Lake Como that will take your breath away.

Bavaria is a perfect year-round travel destination, but it is particularly special during the colder months between November and April, when it is often blessed with tons of snow creating a truly magical atmosphere. It's the perfect setting for a romantic honeymoon amidst snow-capped mountains, lakes, and under the high-altitude sun.

Experience a scenic Bavaria driving holiday along the renowned German Alpine Road, which runs parallel to the Austrian border, and connects Lake Constance in Germany to Salzburg in Austria. This iconic route, located in Bavaria, is the oldest holiday route in Germany and offers breathtaking natural landscapes and the opportunity to visit the palaces of Bavaria's last king, including the world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle, renowned for its romantic allure.

We recommend staying at the elegant nature resort 5* Althoff Seehotel Überfahrt on the banks of Lake Tegernsee, which has been awarded the "Best Gourmet Resort 2019" by HIDEAWAYS. If you have time, stay for a second night to enjoy a full day at the 32,000-square-foot luxury 4 Elements Spa by Althoff, featuring Europe’s first all-suite spa. It's the perfect way to unwind and relax after a day of exploring the beautiful Bavarian Alps.



Looking for a romantic honeymoon in France? The sea-side resort of Nice at the French Riviera is less than six hours away from the French capital in the north. Take the high-speed train from Paris to reach the town at the shimmering Côte D'Azur.

Start your honeymoon with a leisurely stroll along the Promenade des Anglais, or indulge in a romantic dinner at one of the many seaside restaurants. The next day, drive the scenic route via the Mediterranean Alps into lovely Provence, where you can explore picturesque villages and vineyards on a wonderful South of France Driving Holiday.

Stay at the luxurious 5* Superior La Coquillade Luxury Resort, a former 13th-century wine-making village perched on a hill overlooking the Luberon national park. The resort features a world-class spa and wellness center, which was awarded the "Best Luxury Spa Retreat France" by the World Luxury Awards in 2019. Enjoy a couples' massage, take a dip in the infinity pool, or simply relax in the serene surroundings of this stunning property.
