The Best Time to Visit Switzerland
The magnificent alpine country of Switzerland has much to offer. From stunning scenery spanning lush valleys and pristine lakes to inspiring vistas and the infamous peaks of Jungfraujoch, Switzerland paints a natural picture of luxury.
With some of the most exquisite views in Europe, it’s difficult to select just one prime season to venture to Switzerland. Some desire a cozy winter getaway while others crave adventurous hikes through the mountains. Whatever your dream Swiss vacation entails, The Nightfall Group is suited to help you prepare your travels at the very best time of year.
The Best Time for Outdoor Excursions in Switzerland
The prime summer months in Switzerland are July through September when the lakes’ temperatures have risen to a level of enjoyment and the landscape is bursting with vibrant colors. If you wish for a quieter time to soak in the summer delights, consider booking closer to the end of September when the high travel season subsides.
While in Switzerland, partake in a few summertime activities:
- Hiking: Switzerland is a global hiking location decorated with breathtaking trails through the Alpine countryside. From short day treks to long journeys, by late April, most trails should be clear of snow.
- Golfing: With a longstanding tradition of golfing, Crans-Montana is home to the 18-hole Severiano Ballesteros Course, the world’s most beautiful golf course. Combine a luxurious stay at a sophisticated resort in the Alps with a day on the course for the ultimate summertime bliss.
- Wine Tasting: Geneva has a rich history of winemaking with vineyards that crawl up the steep countryside of Lake Geneva, making one of the most spectacular landscapes in Switzerland. Stay in The Nightfall Group’s exquisite villa near the lake and take in all the wine country has to offer.
The Best Time for a Charming Winter Holiday in Switzerland
With enchanted snowcapped mountains and quaint towns tucked in the frosty air, Switzerland is a winter dreamland from December to March. Boasting the largest glacier in Europe and shimmering mirror lakes that reflect the soaring snowy peaks, it’s as if winter originated here.
While in Switzerland, indulge in snow-filled wonders:
- Skiing: Switzerland is home to the world’s best ski slopes that draw visitors from around the globe. With Olympic-level to kid-friendly options, the Swiss mountains are parallel to none. A stay at an incredible chalet in Zermatt with panoramic mountain views is the ideal place to get cozy after a long day on the slopes.
- Spa Days: If hiking and skiing don’t suit your fancy, Switzerland is the perfect backdrop for a rejuvenating spa escape. Enjoy pampering in your very own luxury villa through The Nightfall Group’s global concierge services, and watch the snow flurries fall as you sink into deep relaxation.
- World-Class Cuisine: While delectable dining is available year-round, winter is the traditional time to sample the country’s best-known dish of fondue. Also, just about every town in the country offers infamous Swiss chocolate tastings.
The inspiring views and incredible landscapes of Switzerland are calling you to a luxurious travel experience like no other. The summer months offer lakeside activities and unrivaled hiking trails, while wintertime brings world-famous ski slopes and sparkling winter charm that mimics that of a postcard.
