We will be in Murren 2 nights the beginning of May. We are flying in to Basel where we are staying the night and also the night before we leave on a Viking River Cruise departing from Basel. I know....a river cruise? well, we are seniors, although we love to hike and not be in crowded places and have travelled pretty much on our own all over, but somehow never Switzerland. After reading RS we decided to add extra days at the beginning of the trip so we could go to Murren, and then after the river cruise we are going to Riga, Latvia.
Anyway, even though we have already set the dates, I am wondering what the weather will be like in Murren at that time. I want to pack light and bring only one pair of walking shoes, not snow boots, and a medium weight water resistant jacket. But I don't want to freeze either.
Any ideas on the weather will be appreciated. Also recommendations for such a quick visit. Do you think there is time to go to the Schilthorn? If we make our connections right we should be there 2 half days and one full day.
Thanks for your replies.
