In 2010, there was a posting on this forum indicating that trips to Gimmelwald, Murren, the Schilthorn & the Jungfraujoch in mid-April were extremely iffy. I'm flying in to Amsterdam in early April and flying out of Frankfurt at the end of April and hoped to fit 2-3 days in the Berner Overland as part of my little piece of the "the Best of Europe" tour. Am I crazy to try to do Switzerland at that time of year? All those closed hotels in Gimmelwald suggest that I could be wasting my time even if I stay in Interlaken or Lauterbrunnen. I'm not planning to hike for hours, just trying to experience the area, but I might feel a little cheated if I couldn't get up into the heights at all. Am I crazy to spend the time on the train to get there at this time of year?
Thanks in advance for your help.
