On holiday in Switzerland.

The interior state of Switzerland is known for its neutrality within Europe, its relatively high prices, its high standard of living and its beautiful landscapes. The mountain landscapes of Switzerland are among the most beautiful in the world. It is not without reason that the country can count on tourists all year round who come mainly to enjoy nature in all its diversity. The weather is an important factor. It is therefore a good idea to find out in advance what kind of weather you can expect in Switzerland during certain travel periods.

The climate in Switzerland

Switzerland has no less than four climates. The highest areas have a high mountain climate, the middle areas a cold continental climate and the lower parts (north-west) a temperate continental climate (type Dfb). The outermost part of Ticino (Lugano/Chiasso), which borders Italy, has a Mediterranean climate or warm maritime climate, with mild winters and warm summers.Switzerland has an image of mountains and snow, which leads many people to mistakenly believe that it is a cold country. During the winter months, the weather in large parts of the country is predominantly wintry and cold, but in spring, the snow disappears in many places and the thermometers quickly rise to pleasant temperatures.
