Romantic Things to Do in Zurich
With waterfront walking opportunities, the historical ambience of the Old Town, and sensual food, Zurich has a lot to offer couples looking for a little romance during their Swiss vacation. Here are a few ways to get in the romantic spirit.
Sunset Boat Ride on Lake Zurich
Take an evening cruise across the waters of Lake Zurich on a private boat for just the two of you. As you sip wine (often included, or you may be able to bring your own), enjoy views of the city while the boat captain points out lakeshore highlights.
Dip into Fondue
There are plenty of restaurants in Zurich’s Old Town where you can sit down to fondue—an irresistible combination of warm, melted cheese and bread. For a fun spin, however, opt for a private fondue and wine tour by tuk-tuk, which allows you to dine while taking in Zurich’s landmarks.
Tap in to the sensual qualities of confection on a chocolate-tasting walking tour that introduces you to an array of delights that will keep you and your love in a happy, romantic mood. Alternatively, take a chocolate class with your partner to learn how to make confections yourself.
Skip the group tours for a private excursion that you and your lover can customize to your interests. Explore the city with your own private driver—who can recommend the most romantic corners and vistas—for a more intimate experience of Zurich than you would have with a group.
Stroll along the Limmat after dark, taking in the lights of the city’s historical attractions and bridges as they reflect on the river.
