Best time of year to visit Bern

The best time to rent an RV in Bern is during spring and summer when the landscape flourishes with blooming flowers. It is also the best season to swim in Switzerland’s clear mountain lakes and try out outdoor activities. Just be aware that the weather can still be unpredictable in March. After that, however, it gets steadily warmer and sunnier. Campgrounds can be fully booked in high summer, so it’s advisable to book early.

A road trip from Bern is also worthwhile in the fall. The landscape is bathed in beautiful fall colors, there are fewer tourists, and pleasant temperatures ensure that even the toughest hiking route is now bearable. The weather can be unpredictable, and it may already be getting chilly, so you should pack a few extra layers of clothing.

If you’re a fan of winter activities such as skiing or snowboarding, winter is also a good time for you to travel to Bern. Switzerland is known for its great winter sports opportunities. In colder weather, many campgrounds might be closed, but there are options to switch to other campgrounds such as private campgrounds on roadsurfer spots.
