I'm planning a Spring visit the the Alps but I'm concerned we're visiting early enough that it might be a bit too cold and too close to winter to stay at a higher elevation. If we visit in late May, for three days, would it be best to stay on the Valley floor where would be warmer and spring flowers might be in full bloom, then take hikes at the higher elevations? Perhaps stay in Lauterbrunnen? Or would it be better to stay at the Gimmelwald Mountain Hostel?
We're traveling very light and will only take a travel backpack and medium jacket.
Looking for recommendations.Thanks for your thoughts.
