      D'Maris Coffman recommended St. Gallen
      Beautiful city at the gateway to the Appenzell Alps. Something of a new university town, but the abbey is also worth a look. Very scenic with a nice vibe.

      This might also work for April given the proximity to Lake Constance. Very scenic.

      Definitely an option for somewhat warmer weather.

      ana rita bras recommended Les Bains de Lavey
      A trully relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Surrounded by the Alps, the location is fabulous. It has a large complex of saunas, hamam, colour therapy, indoor and outdoor swimming pools. You may be at ... read more
      the indoor pool and listen to classic music underwater, or outside on the different bubble pools and circuits or whirlpool rapid. Fabulous time with family. Highly recommended! this experience in winter with snow should be amazing. Adult entrance fee for 3 hrs, 25CHF.

      It may be a bit touristy, but i think it's worth the visit.

      Switzerland has two high seasons: one in winter for skiing and one in summer. There is no particularly low season. Just plan to go when it is convenient for you and book ahead if possible.

      Julia P recommended Basel
      I really enjoyed spending a few days in Basel. It's a charming little city on the River, with a relatively conservative in fashion (think loads of Birkenstocks) yet creative in art population. The ... read more
      Elisabethenkirche is an interesting church which is pretty much non-religious and hosts all sort of performances, while there are also some great art museums and the opera. Early Music (baroque and medieval) is also a specialty in Basel because of one of the world's leading conservatories for its performance being located here. Food is a little expensive, as is coffee, but the city is easy to navigate by tram or bike, and worth a visit.

      Not sure where you're headed, but I'd say April is probably a safe bet for avoiding hordes of tourists (not super ski season or summer). Enjoy your trip!

      The weather might be a little chilly - 50s and low 60s (10°-17°C) in most places during the day - but you'll definitely beat summer's high season. Are you also looking for places to go?

    • Alix F recommended Interlaken
      It is entirely possible that this is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. The soaring green mountains, the crystal clear lakes, the quaint architecture, the laid-back vibe, and of ... read more
      course all of the adventure sports - all of this combines to make Interlaken one of the most ideal spots in the world to take a REAL vacation, the kind where you forget about the rest of the world and just soak in the beauty and excitement around you. If you are backpacking, you'll want to save some cash for all of the activities that this place has to offer - every one of them is worth skipping a few drinks in a pub somewhere else.

      If you are going to be in the area, I have to recommend Interlaken!
