First, thank you for everyone who took time to answer all my questions about our September 2020 3-week honeymoon. While we haven't cancelled our trip (or wedding for that matter) yet, I am starting to come up with plan B. I've searched the forums and read trip reviews/comparisons of spring vs. fall travel. However, I could use your entirely subjective expert opinions again!

If you were to spend 18 days exploring using the linked itinerary, would you travel in May 2021 or September 2021 and why? www.myswissalps.com/forum/topic/16-days-honeymoon-in-switzerland-september

Thank you all in advance for your insight!

Christina

Hi Christina,

I think it is a clever thing to have a plan B nowadays. I, personally love both months (and even April and October). If you are coming in May you can see more flowers, but you cannot hike at high altitude. If you are coming in September you'll see fewer flowers but you can hike everywhere. So it depends on your plans. Weather can be changeable in both months. Also check this one: www.myswissalps.com/besttimetovisit. And this one too: www.myswissalps.com/forum/topic/season-to-travel-in-switzerland

Hi Christina -

<<"However, I could use your entirely subjective expert opinions again!">>

I think that the earlier thread is still valid. If you go in May, the Alps have many things not available, as discussed in that thread.

Thank you both! We are leaning towards September 2021, but did want to make sure we took opinions and options into account. Appreciate your feedback!

Hi again,

Forgot to mention that a lot of my photos are attached further down in the comments section of some of the reports.

Cheers,

Narelle

PS Have been to many of your National Parks, and they are amazing! Loved the Tetons too!
