Autumn in Switzerland - the 5 things to see and do


Whether you call it Autumn, Fall or Herbst, the season between the middle of September and the middle of December is stunning in Switzerland. 

On of my very favourite things about living in Switzerland is the four very distinct seasons. Although I am always a little sad to sad goodbye to the warmer and more relaxed days of summer, I am excited to get my scarves and boots out and get out and enjoy the magical season of autumn.

Autumn in Switzerland

The landscape is beginning to reveal its autumn personality as the leaves change from green to vibrant reds, orange and gold.  The morning air is crisp and the lake and countryside will soon be covered in a sleepy fog.  

But most importantly, it is still a great time of year to get outside and explore everything Switzerland has to offer!

Hello Switzerland’s current issue features my top 5 list of things to do in Switzerland during the Autumn season. Here on the blog this week join me exploring a different one of those top 5 in a little more detail in the series "Autumn in Switzerland".
