When is the best time to visit Switzerland?


The Swiss summer lasts from June to September and offers travelers the most pleasant climate for outdoor activities. The peak tourist season falls between July and August. This is when the prices are generally highest for accommodations and the resorts are fully booked.

In addition to providing the best deals, the months on either side of summer offer a moderate climate and less people. Lonely Planet explains that there are good reasons to visit different parts of the country at any time of year. Switzerland is a mountainous region with rapid elevation changes, creating numerous micro-climates in relatively small geographic areas, allowing the traveler to experience a diverse range of temperatures and weather year-round.
