Fall in Switzerland - Ultimate Guide!

Here are our favorite places in Switzerland to enjoy the fall colors in October. I've included viewpoints, activities, and fall hiking options for all ages and abilities. You don't necessarily have to be an experienced hiker or adventure seeker to enjoy the beauty here. But if you love the tough climbs, I have hikes for you too.

My guide includes suggested itineraries for various Swiss regions, so you can plan just a weekend or longer trip by visiting multiple destinations.

For the most vibrant colors, it's best time to visit Switzerland in mid October, starting around the 15th of October. My travel tips cover important info for traveling in Switzerland during this time, when some services may be closed or early snow may close some attractions.

Our family has lived in Zürich Switzerland since 2005 and have done many autumn hikes here over the years. We hope this guide will help you enjoy all our favorite fall places in this gorgeous country.
