1st of March is the beginning of the spring season. Nature awakens from its winter sleep, the warmth returns and the sun shines. The flower fields are in full bloom again, the birds are chirping, the days are getting longer and the feeling of a new beginning comes up.
Spring offers an incredible number of activities. Like a bike tour through Baselland on the Chriesiroute, from Liestal to Laufen. Or the Parc der Unabhängigkeit in Morges. Where 120,000 different tulips take your breath away. But a visit to the Brissago Islands in Ticino, where the climate is mild, is also a popular spring activity. As well as a ride on the Glacier express, between Zermatt and St.Moritz, which takes you through 2 seasons at the same time with breathtaking views.
The weather in spring is typical, sunny but windy. Temperatures rise slowly and the warm air returns. Spring lasts exactly 3 months, and summer officially begins on 20 June. More information at MeteoSwiss.
Tip from us: windbreakers and sunglasses are a must in spring, no matter where you go.
