Appropriate Clothing


I'm going on holiday to Switzerland on 3rd August, staying in Grindelwald. We plan to do sightseeing mainly and some excursions, including the Jungfraujoch trip and a husky sledge ride. I have no idea whether to take 'normal' clothes or am I going to need warm clothes with hats and scarves too?

I take normal Summer clothes, with the addition of a jumper, sweater, or thicker cardigan for the mountain tops and carry it in my rucksack, you may need it you may not, as for gloves and scarves I personally would not you can always retreat indoors if you get cold. Others may disagree.

take warm clothes if you are going to mountain tops - layers best!

And good to have a waterproof jacket, it's good also when it's windy.

For instance it's pretty cool and windy hier , tops of mountains are in the clouds. Weather forecast is bad for the whole week!

For the end of the month it seems to be better


Happy traveling

Wind/Water proof jacket is absolutely essential as mountain weather can be very unpredictable. Gloves & hat would only be required/useful on mountain tops.
