Grindelwald - September weather

Hi,

Can you give me any idea of the temperatures I can expect in Grindelwald itself in early to mid September?

Somewhere between hot (25C) and cold (-10c), possibly outside those temperatures in extreme weather. It't likely to be a range between just over freezing and pleasantly warm.

Weather in the mountains is difficult to predict for any time, and can be very variable from day to day. To be comfortable allow for sun, wind, rain and possibly snow. You can probably forget the shorts, but take light trousers, t-shirts and tops, warm trousers and tops, waterproofs, gloves, a hat, light shoes and boots. You can then travel fairly light and have the correct layers to be comfortable at any temperature.

Hi Megapics,

we went to Grindelwald about 5 years ago around 25th Sept. The weather as stated before was "changable"!

The guy before was pretty acurate in what he said and I would just add that the trousers with the zip off legs are a great idea, we had extreme heat, extreme cold and even snow, the area is fab, you will have a good time, wait for a clear day to go up the Schilthorn and Junfraujoch though as it will be a shame not to see the views from the top.

Suggestion for you before you go as well: Have a watch of a DVD called the beckoning silence before you go, it's a spellbinding tale of some guys that climbed the Eiger back in the 1930's.There is a book about this as well, a Sheffield man called joe simpson re-created the clinb for the film and wrote the book

have an ace time
