Top 10 Best Places to Visit in Switzerland in Autumn

24-10-2022 10 4 0 0 Báo lỗi

Switzerland is lovely all year, but October gives the most spectacular color palette in the Alps. Even though several mountain passes and hiking paths are closed due to snow, you may still visit high mountains and enjoy Swiss nature. Just keep in mind that September, in particular, has rather pleasant temperatures, and it does not become really cold in the lower areas of Switzerland until November. Autumn is a great time to try some local food, such as fondue, raclette, and other cheese dishes while snuggling up next to a fireplace in a hut or hotel. Here are the best places to visit in Switzerland in autumn.

Bellwald

It is a small town in the canton of Valais, located at an elevation of 1560 meters. You may visit this charming village in the fall and be pleasantly surprised. It is a 450-person village with breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps, wonderful mountain bike rides, a mountain station, and even some skiing slopes. Bellwald will soon be linked to Fiesch, the starting point for one of Switzerland's largest ski resorts, the Aletsch Arena. It will be a game changer for this small hamlet.


Bellwald is a really unusual wooden old town with hundreds of authentically old Swiss buildings, and you can even enter one of them and see some short films on the community's history. Stroll around the ancient town, go into the slopes, have some fondue, and visit a local ONYA SPA for the perfect fall day. When driving to Bellwald, just before the last bend up to Bellwald from the main road - right next to the main road - you will see one of Switzerland's longest suspension bridges. There is a dedicated parking area beside the bridge for bridge visitors.

Zermatt

Zermatt is one of the most well-known destinations in Switzerland, and it is perhaps the most well-known Swiss hamlet and skiing resort. It has everything: iconic timber architecture, several hiking paths, mountain stations, the famed Glacier wonderland, and, most importantly, the Matterhorn peak. That is quite the show.


Once in Zermatt, you must visit Glacier Paradise, Europe's highest mountain station at 3883 meters in height, where you can see the glacier, Matterhorn, and even Mont Blanc in France. There is a restaurant, a museum, and a variety of other things available there. Want to go skiing? That is already achievable in the fall. You may still make a magnificent climb to the famed Gornergrat in early October - it will take up to 4 hours, but the vistas will stay with you forever.


There are just two alternatives for getting to this location: by rail or by foot. The first option is to go by train, and you may do so by boarding a train that is part of the Swiss rail network. If you have a Swiss travel pass, you may easily board any train in the network. If you do not have a pass, you should research the train's timetable and price before purchasing tickets. Zermatt is a stop on the glacier express, a Swiss rail classic.

Mount Pilatus

Mount Pilatus is a well-known mountain in Lucerne with a very pleasant mountain station at 2128 meters level. To reach there, you may use a cable car or trek it, although the hike will take you three hours. If you wish to take a cable car, head to Kriens and enjoy the journey - it will take more than half an hour, and on the way up to the top, you may stop at a couple of sites with restaurants, playgrounds for kids, and other enjoyable things.


On top, there is a hotel, a restaurant, hiking routes, wonderful photo opportunities, and a souvenir shop. It is October, and it may get rather cool up there, and the wind is not uncommon, so bring a jacket. As is customary in Switzerland, such mountain stations include everything you might want: a hotel, a restaurant, several souvenir stores, and so on. When you go out, you will see a handful of opportunities to walk even higher - make use of them. The views from the top of the summit are spectacular. It is very steep to get to the top, but if you take it easy, it’s just a few minutes and you will get the best Mount Pilatus can offer.

Basel

Basel is the third largest city in Switzerland, located near France and Germany. In fact, you can drive from Basel's city center to France or Germany in 5 minutes. It's almost there. You wouldn't even recognize you're in a foreign nation if it weren't for border control. But Basel is known for something else: it is the capital of museums in Switzerland, with over 40 of them. It is rich in culture and art, and it has a very active lifestyle. Basel has art, cartoon, paper, environment, history, firefighting, Jewish heritage, and many other museums.


What is the best fall activity? What about taking a leisurely stroll along the Rhein river and visiting a museum located right on the river's banks? There is a well-known Tinguely museum where you may see strange yet interesting moving sculptures. It is the world's only museum of its sort.

Mürren

It is a quiet Jungfrau area locale with a skiing resort, gorgeous Swiss chalets, and just breathtaking views of the mountains across the valley. Because Mürren is not accessible by automobile, you either trek up from Lauterbrunnen or take a cable car to Grütschalp and then a little red train to Mürren. This is one of the most gorgeous train rides in Switzerland. It's short, but the views are spectacular. It's amazing how they managed to get a train up there.


Mürren is quieter in the fall than in the summer and is already preparing for the winter season. So in the fall, it will be quiet and there will be few people. Toplist recommends two things: travel to another medieval town, Gimmelwald (the trip back and forth will take around 2 hours), and eat fondue in Mürren at the restaurant with these spectacular mountain views. It will be an authentic Swiss experience.

Zurich

Zurich is a fairy-tale city built on the banks of a river and a lake, with the snow-capped Swiss Alps rising in the background. Clean cobblestone streets embrace the mountainous terrain, and old church spires soar into the sky. Despite its image as a center of old-school international banking and capital for world-class chocolate confections, Zurich is nevertheless a highly contemporary city that likes to take its time in life. Travelers looking for a genuine experience should do the same.


Dadaists gathered in Zurich's Cabaret Voltaire to either change or damage art, depending on your point of view. But you should come for the chocolate, grilled sausages, locally grown wines, incredible museums, medieval architecture, lavish shopping, magnificent landscapes, and Lake Zurich's pristine, clear water. You may spend one to three days in Zurich before heading to the nearby ski slopes or continuing on to Geneva.

Montreux

Montreux is the most popular resort on Lake Geneva, and it is well-known for its picturesque lakefront setting in southwestern Switzerland. The village of 26,000 people has attracted many tourists in the past, thanks to its stunning Alps backdrop. Montreux's Mediterranean climate has earned it a reputation as one of Switzerland's most prestigious vacation resorts.


Because of Montreux's relatively moderate environment, a wide range of Mediterranean plant species flourish near the lake. As a result, the Montreux region is also known as the Vaud Riviera. The unusual blend of lakeside palm palms and hilly terrain creates a wonderful sense of paradise for tourists. The Quays of Montreux, a 13 km/8 mi pathway that surrounds Lake Geneva, is the perfect place to experience the gorgeous landscape and diverse plants. Montreux is appealing not just because of its character, but also because of its surroundings, which include terraced vineyards and magnificent landscapes.

Lucerne

Lucerne is a picturesque town on Lake Lucerne in central Switzerland, surrounded by snowcapped mountains and ancient architecture. The historic attractions, busy town squares, boutique stores, and old churches can all be found in this lovely city's old town. The Musegg Wall and its towers (the intact defenses date back to the 13th century) and Europe's oldest wooden covered bridge, the must-see Chapel Bridge, which was originally erected in the 1330s, are among the top attractions. Those searching for a once-in-a-lifetime experience may also take a cable car to Mount Pilatus, which offers breathtaking views of Lake Lucerne and a variety of activities.


The Kapellbrücke, a covered wooden bridge crossing diagonally across the Reuss, is Lucerne's most iconic landmark. Apart from being a gorgeous centerpiece for Lucerne, the bridge, erected in 1333, is notable for the more than 100 17th-century paintings representing patron saints and events from the town's history that hang from the roof rafters inside. Riding the cog train from the beaches of Lake Lucerne to an elevation of 1,798 meters on Mt Rigi is one of Switzerland's trademark experiences. This is Europe's first cog railway, and you may ride in rebuilt carriages that date back to the line's inception.

Swiss Alps

Everything you've undoubtedly heard about the Swiss Alps is true; it's a breathtakingly gorgeous place that everyone should visit at least once. This Alpine area of Switzerland provides one-of-a-kind scenery, from rugged peaks to verdant valleys that appear to stretch on forever to quaint medieval mountain villages overlooking glacial lakes and rivers. Spend some time hiking or skiing the mountain routes while you're not appreciating your surroundings. Whatever resort region you pick as your base, don't miss out on the world-famous Swiss après-ski experience to unwind after a day on the slopes.


The Swiss Alps are one of the greatest skiing destinations in the world, with some of the best ski resorts and, you guessed it, the best slopes. Pack your skis and waterproofs and head to Switzerland, whose slopes you must experience at least once in your life. The Swiss Alps have some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. From mountain peaks, you'll be able to see so many gorgeous, secluded lakes that you'll never want to leave. To give you an idea of what to expect, the ski resort of Zermatt alone has 38 peaks above 4,000 meters.

Bern

Bern, Switzerland's capital, is frequently neglected in favor of flashier Swiss towns such as Zurich and Geneva. Bern, on the other hand, has numerous charms, including an old town (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) with the distinctive Zytglogge clock tower, Renaissance-style fountains, and a Gothic cathedral with Switzerland's tallest spire. There are also various museums dedicated to Albert Einstein, who resided in Bern while formulating his theory of relativity. For panoramic views of the city, head to Gurten mountain, which may be reached by funicular, bike, or foot.


The Swiss Federal Assembly must be attended in Switzerland's capital. The Bundeshaus was built in phases over the course of the second part of the nineteenth century. If you want to visit inside, you must reserve ahead of time because tours fill up rapidly. Your experienced guide will shower you with fascinating details about the Swiss federal system, its foundation myths, and Bern's 150-year history as the country's capital. The interior, which bursts with art, stained glass, and carved wood, is even more spectacular than the prominent Neo-Renaissance front.
