Hi All,

As i am planning my trip in the first week of May this year, I want to know how are the weather situations during that time

Also, I want to know if the staff at the rail stations speaks English because I dont know any other foreign language than English

Hi Mona,

Weather in the Alps is highly changeable and there's no way of telling what the circumstances will be like in early May yet. You may encounter anything, ranging from pretty warm spring weather in the lower areas to much colder conditions higher up in the mountains, from clear sunny skies to clouds and rain. Weather forecasts only start to become reliable a couple of days in advance. Our weather and season pages may be of help here.

Yes, most railway employees speak English, especially in the tourist areas and at larger stations.
