We've been planning to be in Switzerland for about 9 days early September this year. However, a really good flight deal popped up for late August and we snagged it - now planning to be in Switzerland from August 23rd to September 1st.
We now have 24 hours until we can cancel if we decide not to go for it. Based on my previous research and reading other forum posts, I was favoring September due to lower hotel prices and fewer crowds.
- Could someone weigh in on if our new dates would pose any problems - is it still crowded last week of August?
-Weather and price-wise, is this really going to be any different from the next week i.e first week of September?
We're travelling from the United States and this will be our first trip to Europe. We are a couple in our early 30s and plan to spend a few days each in Appenzell, Lucerne and Wengen. Maybe a day near Lake Geneva if we can manage it before travelling to France. Our main focus will be hiking/kayaking, gondola and train rides and exploring in general. Our itinerary is still in the works but requesting feedback on our dates itself since it's time-sensitive. If we can be satisfied that our new dates are nothing to worry about or might even be better than September, that would be a load off our minds - any inputs help. Thanks so much!
