Upon a day of hiking/sighseeing what is proper etiquette for lunch/dinner attire? Nice Jeans or shorts and a nicer top (what i wear normally out) acceptable? Or, pants/sundress more appropriate? Do I need to change at hotel before going to a restaurant? Our lunch budget is 30ppand dinner40pp....so basic, not high end places.

And, Is certain dress expected while touring/hiking? Is shorts/tank top acceptable, or a bit more dressed up, not so casual.

Hi Autumnz -

<"Nice Jeans or shorts and a nicer top (what i wear normally out) acceptable?">> Usually.

<<"Or, pants/sundress more appropriate? acceptable?">>

Nice, but rarely necessary.

<<"Do I need to change at hotel before going to a restaurant?">>

Rarely; only in high end places.

Cities and countryside are different.

Do you have specifics?

Generally, wear what is comfortable, unless you are in a city or going to a high class restaurant in a resort area.

Lucerne and vicinity, wengen (dinners at hotel baeren), montreux/Geneva vacinity.

Also probably depends on weather...if I'm walking around town and it's 35c outside, different than 20 celcius.
