After the stress of planning a wedding, many newlyweds just want to relax on their honeymoon and enjoy a peaceful time together. What better place to do that then one of the most peaceful places on Earth - Switzerland
One town that couples will surely love is Lucerne. This beautiful Swiss village features a large lake that is perfect for a romantic cruise. Travelers will enjoy the quaint nature of this quiet, unassuming village, as they explore landmarks like the chapel bridge, said to be the oldest wooden bridge in Europe. Like many cities in Switzerland, Lucerne has a remarkably well-preserved Old Town district, where couples can enjoy the romance of old buildings while grabbing a bite to eat at a delicious eatery.
Lucerne is also a great jumping off point for exploring the rest of Switzerland. Across the lake from Lucerne is Altdorf, where legend has it William Tell shot an arrow off his son's head with an arrow. Travelers who want a sense of Switzerland's history should also take a nearby journey to Rutli Meadow, where they'll find a Swiss flag flapping alone in the breeze. It was here that the Swiss Confederation as it is recognized today was originally formed.
