Lounge by the Luscious Lakes
Listening to the lapping water against the pearl-gray rocks while gazing up at the marble sky is a signature part of Switzerland’s romantic beat—and Lake Geneva is its pulse. Also called Lac Léman, its waterfronts at Montreux, Vevey, and Lausanne offer the most delightful spots for lounging on pale wooden decking, especially at night where the evening sunset illuminates the still waters with merging reds, oranges, and yellows. Lake Murten, in the Fribourg area, is much smaller and is decorated with fine wooden buildings along certain banks, while floating swans create true romantic ambience.
