The holidays are coming, which means engagement season is starting! If you want to propose in Switzerland, you can make the moment extra special for your partner by planning all the details.

As Geneva-based proposal planners, we can help with that. It all starts with choosing the perfect location! Is your partner on the shy side? Then a private proposal is best. Or, if they’re outgoing and love extravagant gestures, a public proposal is the way to go! Either way, thoughtfully choosing where you’ll pop the question is the key to creating an unforgettable moment. That’s why we’ve listed our favorite public and private locations to propose in Switzerland during the holidays. Read on to find out what they are!

Where to Propose in Switzerland During the Holidays

For a Private Proposal

Switzerland is known for its natural beauty, so why not take advantage of the great outdoors for your private proposal? We love the idea of a proposal on a mountaintop surrounded by dramatic alpine views. Alternatively, you could head to your favorite lakeside picnic spot! Wherever you choose, the beauty of nature is bound to add to the emotion of the moment.

If you prefer to propose indoors (Swiss winters are notoriously chilly, after all!), consider popping the question at home in front of your Christmas tree. Not only will you enjoy complete privacy in the comfort of your home, but it’s incredibly romantic to start your next chapter as a couple surrounded by the life you’ve built together. Just imagine trimming the tree with your partner and presenting them with a ring instead of another ornament!

For a Public Proposal

There are endless options for a public proposal in Switzerland, especially during the holidays. You could head to your favorite spot in town, such as the restaurant you went to on your first date or the park where you like to walk your dogs. Or, for a holiday proposal with an extra-festive feel, you could head to the local Christmas market!

Of course, the timing of your proposal matters too. If you’re planning a proposal during the holidays, why not go all out and propose at midnight on New Year’s Eve? Whether you plan to celebrate at a rooftop bar or a cozy party with friends, an engagement is the perfect way to ring in the new year. Plus, you’ll get to share the most memorable New Year’s kiss!
