Best time to hire a campervan in Bern

The best time to hire a campervan 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. Campsites can be fully booked in high summer, so it’s advisable to book early.

A road trip from Bern is also worthwhile in autumn. The landscape is bathed in beautiful autumn colours, 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 campsites might be closed, but there are options to switch to other campsites such as private pitches and camping sites from roadsurfer spots.
