When to Elope in Switzerland

Generally speaking mid-June to early October are the best months to elope in Switzerland. Of course it all depends on the exact location that you are going for, the activities that you have in mind and how much you mind Meeting other tourists on your trail and/or being 'limited' by snowfall.

Can we legally get married in Switzerland?

If neither you nor your partner is a legal resident of Switzerland, then unfortunately you won't be able to legally get married here.

A symbolic or a commitment ceremony is definitely possible however, and many couples that travel to elope choose a non-legal ceremony like this even in countries where they actually can have a civil ceremony. It's just the easier option as you don't have to deal with all the paperwork and legal regulations. You can choose to get married in your own country before or after eloping, or to just not get officially married at all - make sure you check what this means for you both legally and financially.
