I might be returning to Europe in mid November at the invitation of a friend who lives near Dortmund, Germany. If I decide to go (much of it depends on finances), I am considering visiting Switzerland as I had initially planned to do this very month. My idea is to base myself in Luzern and take day trips to the Berner Oberland, Bern, and maybe Mt Rigi.
How is mid November weatherwise in the mountains? Do I risk having cable cars, trains or any kind of lifts closed? Would it be better at the end of October?
Any input would be great. Thank you.
