perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

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

It is not ideal 100%, but the weather in Switzerland that month is, on average, good in Zurich, Lugano, Lausanne and Bern. I allows to appreciate tour in these areas. And even why not take a little time to relax under the sun!

If you do not go to spend your time in a lounger by the pool, but, for example for hiking, the cities of Lucerne, Montreux, Fribourg, Basel and Geneva have a decent enough weather for that in may. Eventually, it is not advisable to travel in the cities of Sion, Interlaken, Zermatt and Davos in may because the climate is unfavorable.
