It is almost impossible to see a weekend in Switzerland without any fairs, festivals or celebrations. Sometimes it is possible to celebrate only a small region or participate in more extensive events. By asking the tourist offices in the region, it is possible to get information about which region, which event, which date. The International Balloon Festival, which takes place at the end of January, will take place on January 2nd. The Harder Potschete masked march is just a few of the many activities you can find at the Alpine between January and March.
Switzerland’s busiest seasons are winter and summer months. In colder months the snowy slopes of the country are filled with skiers, snowboarders and those who want to play snowballs. In the summer months, some of the best and biggest festivals in Europe are made here and attract a lot of tourists from all over the world.
Weather in Switzerland
Switzerland, rich in mountains, lakes, and rivers, has six percent of Europe’s clean water reserves, and six percent of the country’s landforms are lakes and glaciers. Switzerland is generally a temperate country, although it varies somewhat. Moreover, precipitation and weather conditions vary by elevation. But the areas with the highest precipitation are the higher places of the Alps.
Summer is the most when the rain is the most, and autumn is the dryest. The Alps are great for skiing in the winter months. In fact, the country is more prevalent with winter tourism. The hot winds of the Northern Alps are influential, and the valleys in the inner parts of the mountains have more arid conditions. Especially in high regions of the country, it is possible to experience sudden weather changes.
