A friend and I will be in Switzerland in late may (26th-31st) and I was hoping to get some advice on hiking. We'll fly into Zurich and maybe spend a little time there, but our main reason for going is to hike. Now I've read that some of the better trails might still be closed then due to snow, is this true?
Also, where would you recommend making a home base? We'd like to see Lucerne as well as the Lauterbrunnen Valley area and do some hiking around these areas. One hike I'd like to do is the Schynige Platte, would that be accessible in late May?
Any other hikes that you would recommend would be appreciated as well!
