My wife and I are planning a trip to Europe from April 15 - May 1st, 2010. She gets to plan a week and I get to plan a week. For me I want to spend a few days in the Alps area. The logistics of getting to and from are not a problem for me other then the expense. The problem is it seems a lot of hotels and attractions are closed during this time. Specifically I tried the hotel Zum Baren and Schonegg Hotel in Wengen both closed for a month +. Looking on Expedia and other travel sites a lot of hotels show no availability and I think this is because they are closed. Also the Schilthorn lift seems to be having maintenance the last week in April, 2010. I did find a few hotels in Grindelwald that would be open and would be suitable for our stay. My question is will it be hard for us to find things to do and places to eat during these times? Will everything else be closed too such as the jungfraujoch - Top of Europe? (Wife wants to visits the ice palace). Or would it be better for us to spend an extra $200 dollars and 40,000 AA miles to change our trip to early June 2010?
