Where to go in Switzerland in april: destination map

perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

warning in april the weather is not the same depending on the city and regions of the country.

That month is not the best month to go to in Switzerland. The weather in Lucerne, Zurich, Lugano, Fribourg, Lausanne, Bern, Basel and Geneva is quite correct. The sun is not there all the time and you risk you to be soaked by rain regularly. However, if you don't plan a beach and relaxation trip but rather visiting museums or hiking, this climate could be appropriate. In addition, there are definitely fewer tourists this month.

But it gets worse: in Montreux, Sion, Interlaken, Zermatt and Davos and surrounding areas where the climate is very bad. It is really not advisable to visit these areas in april.
