Switzerland Weather In March

Switzerland Weather In March
In the month of March, winter begins to recede in Switzerland making way for spring, which begins especially in the southern part of the country. Temperatures vary between 11°C by day and 1°C by night, with an average of 6°C.

While some parts of Switzerland continue to witness some snowfall and winter fog, the southern area welcomes you with lush greenery, blooming meadows and flowering trees. Lake Geneva, Lake Lugano, St. Moritz and Zermatt are must-visit destinations especially in early spring while the weather is pleasant and the blue skies and snow-clad mountains make for mesmerising scenery.

While you enjoy this lush beauty around, the higher altitudes are great for skiing, so you experience the best of both seasons. Owing to the weather in Switzerland in March, this is perhaps the best time to ski across the Swiss slopes because it isn’t too chilly, there’s a good amount of sunshine, and fewer people around, as well.

The Black Forest and the Rhine Falls were in my bucket list for so long. I was excited to visit these places and I loved the place. Not only did I enjoyed my visit but also loved learning the craft of Titisee. This was a new experience that I had in my life and I cannot forget learning this craft. The best part of the trip was having a black forest cake in the black forest. I would totally recommend you to plan your trip to the Black forest.

The cogwheel train ride was amazingly good. Gazing out of the window, the elegant landscapes just mesmerized me. The Mt Pilatus Trip is a must-try for everyone. Me and my family I had a great time enjoying the cogwheel train ride. It was an exciting experience, especially for my parents. The local guide was really knowledgeable and he was a great help when it can to leaning new things about the place.

I got children tickets for my 15-year-old and 2 adult tickets for my parents although I was not there, the guide was really helpful and my parents and kid had a lot of fun. I recommend that if you are planning to visit Lucerne then you can go through Thrillophilia. Great discount on tickets and overall management is very professional.

I can certainly say that there is nothing more exciting than spending some time with your friends in a racing boat. The instructer was very polite and extremely knowledgeable. He did some cool tricks with the boat and nowhere did we feel that our safety was not in the balance.

Comfort, beauty and pleasure; three words that describe my E Tuk Tuk Experience. Totally worth the price. This awesome experience took us to some of the best places in Zurich like Sechseläutenplatz, Niederdorf, the National museum and many other places. Enjoyed the picturesque steers of Zunich and loved capturing the beautiful buildings.
