Best months to visit
Though picturesque at any time of year, the best time to visit Switzerland is between April and October, though winter sports enthusiasts may prefer December to March. The country has four distinct seasons, each with its own attractions. The spring months of March to May bring Alpine blooms, flowering trees and cows heading out to pasture.

Immerse yourself in the expansive pastoral surroundings of the Swiss Alps, complete with glacial lakes, refreshing forests, and deliciously pure air; Switzerland truly is the epitome of wellness.
