This time of year, summer thunderstorms in the afternoon are the norm. High places are best visited by an early AM start. The Swiss Transport Museum is a favorite rainy day activity. Great exhibits, interactive and static, planetarium, iMax theater, restaurants, etc. Easy to reach by boat or bus.

The roll of thunder among the mountains can be an auditory treat also.

Hi Aarti, try to worry not too much. If thunderstorms are forecasted, this may actually mean it's still sunny part of the day with rain starting in the (late) afternoon. Please check https://www.myswissalp for details, and see https://www.myswissalp for some bad weather options. Enjoy your trip!
