Spring is my favourite time in Switzerland. Its warm enough to enjoy a nice walk in the forest without the need to wear a hat and gloves, or worry too much about the possibility of rain, but not so hot that you look like you have spent an hour in a sauna when you return home.
Swiss people love being outdoors have of course got everything under control with their 'wanderweg' trails. There are trails for every ability. They are well signposted and there is even a website so you can plan your trip in advance. You jut have to watch out for the mountain bikers, and there are LOADS of those especially in the mountains and forest walking trails. They usually use the bell to alert you, but they are fast so you need to take care and be alert.
Spring is also the time when the flowers start to bloom and Switzerland has loads of places to 'PYO' or Pick Your Own flowers.
Of course the absolute best thing about spring is the longer days and the fact that summer is just around the corner......
What tends to happen is that there are 2-4 rows of tulips and daffodils, then when there are finished the lupin and Sweet William appear.
Later into the summer there are rows of Gladioli and Sunflowers.
There is a drum for the cash - its an honesty system, and usually a pair of scissors and some string to tie them together with.
I love it because you can choose which stage of flowering you pick your flowers, and can kind of arrange them as you cut to see what they will look like.
