Lauterbrunnen in April. pls help.

I have been to many sites and details but couldn't find the exact details of what Lauterbrunnen would be like in April . Pls help.

Can anybody tell how it would be there around April 15th and would there be enough greenery around which looks like real beauty of Lauterbrunnen ? We also hope that the waterfalls are there at the time. (Is there any site which may show us photographs of Lauterbrunnen in April?)

Pls help as we have already planned to reach there on 14th April 2012. Hope we are not going to feel like lost at the time.

Thanks.

Unfortunately it will all depend on the weather.That time of year is the tail end of the ski season. If the winter has been relatively mild and spring arrives early you may see green meadows and a few flowers popping up. However if winter hangs on longer things could be gray and some snow remaining. Some of the waterfalls should be active but not quite as much as later when things up higher really start melting.

There's quite a chance of snow actually falling in April as well, winter is getting later each year. It's started really late this year, so we don't know if it will be relatively mild or will just extend into April more.

Lauterbrunnen is around 800m high. Normally at that level after March there is no snow left. But there can be in shady areas and the Lauterbrunnen valley is very steep so the amount of spring sun parts of it get is limited.

I certainly would not expect to see rolling green meadows full of flowers quite that early but I would expect to see some flowers - daffodils for exampkle - blooming. Those would be in peoples' gardens!

Hi Varun k,

Your travel date is fixed and unalterable - yet you can rest assured that Swiss valleys/mountains will unlike Indian ones in the hot summertime,and that the scenery in and around Lauterbrunnen will be wonderful - be it residual snow or early spring flora.

So,have fun.
