When to go

Summer has nice warm weather making it great for outdoor activities in the mountains and exploring cities, the countryside and hitting the beach. It also has the highest prices and most crowds. 

Spring and fall offer the warm weather benefits without as many crowds making it ideal for visiting but fall also brings rainy season. 

Ski slopes aside, winter has the fewest tourists making it the cheapest. But you might experience  closures for some activities due to weather or not enough people to participate. The Christmas markets are outstanding .
