My family and I, 5 adults and 5 children, ages 5-13, will be traveling to Switzerland for the first time next year. We would like to know the best time to visit. We plan to spend time in Berne as well as hike in the Swiss Alps and visit Gimmelwald, Murren and Zermatt. We had thought of traveling in April, but I read on a couple websites that for hiking in the Alps, April is not necessarily a good time for that and that June through September are best. Just want to get more input on this topic. Thanks!
