Greetings to all,
I'm travelling to Switzerland this November during mid month (end of 2nd week to 2nd last week of Nov) and planning to rent a car to drive around.
Will like to seek advise and insights from people who are familiar to Switzerland on,
1. What I will need to be aware of, and in preparation (e.g. other than winter tyres) to rent a car during this period.
2. What is the weather generally like if I am to drive during this period? I understand that it is still in Fall, but googled around only to realise that there might be snow in some areas.
3. Is it common for people to travel by car around Switzerland in November? this will be my first time to Switzerland.
3. Is my itinerary feasible for driving? Below is a summary.
Day 1: depart from Zurich to Lucerne.
Day 2 & 3: Brünig
Enroute Engelberg (cable car).
Enroute Aletsch Glacier via Fiesch (Gondola) [if time permits] & Enroute Interlaken, Grindelwald, Jungfraujoah (switch to Train)
Day 4 & 5: Berne (Enroute to Blausee possible?)
Day 6 & 7: Zermatt (I'm aware we are not allowed to drive into Zermatt. Any advise or suggestion where to park the car?)
Day 8: Lugano
Day 9 & 10: Varenna, Italy (Which are the ferry point options to drive and cross to Varenna?)
Day 11: Liechtenstein
Day 12: back to Zurich
I feel it will be a valuable/interesting experience to drive in a different country and climate, and would like to do so if conditions permit. However, I do also want to ensure it is generally safe first and foremost and having some precautionary measures.
Really appreciate if fellow members could advise on my concerns and or any suggestions.
