The Bachelor Heats Up Switzerland

Honeymoons & Destination Weddings

Tahiti, Fiji, St. Lucia...contestants on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette travel to amazing places. In this Bachelor Ben season, the cast and crew nixed the idea of an exotic beach locale in favor of Interlaken, Switzerland! Wouldn't have been my first choice, but surprisingly, this quaint town in the Alps brought on the romance. First up, there was Ben and Nicki, helicoptering over stunning mountains and drinking champagne in a chalet. Lindzi got my least favorite date—rappelling down a 300-foot gorge—but Ben made up for it with a steamy hot tub session and a multi-course dinner in a five-star restaurant. And Courtney got to ride a charming train through green countryside and drink wine (Not bad!). To stay where Ben did, check out the spa-focused Victoria Jungfrau resort (from $557), specifically room 414. Awkward run in with Kacie not included.
