Dear Friends,

I am planning a 8 night visit to Switzerland but very confused as to which will be the best month - April or October....I do not wish to see snow, also wish to avoid rainfall months, green pastures & scenic beauty is my main option, 2 couples & 2 kids aged 5 & 10...My places of visit will be Montreux, Zermatt, Wengen & Lucerne, 2 nights at each place.

I think your chances of rain are similar in both months. Typically I would tell people to go in early October.

I agree with the above, you can't expect not to have some rain while in Switzerland. It's possible but not likely. Rain is what causes the nice green scenery after all :-) The below page might be helpful:
