Subject: Berner Oberland in 2nd week April 2004
Hi Ziners,

My parents are looking for feedback on the volatility of the weather in the Berner Oberland region, and recommendations for a suitable base town. They would be there for about 4 days in the second week of April 2004 and are firstly trying to decide if the weather is likely to be all snow and sleet and rain thereby preventing the magnificent views and lovely walks and cycling they had envisaged.

Secondly - if the weather isn't a deterrent - they were trying to decide if they should base in Gimmelwald, or Lauterbrunnen, or if anyone had an alternative suggestion? They would like to go up to the Schilthorn restaurant, and do some walking, and maybe cycling, see the waterfalls spoken about in the literature... They haven't yet gone into detail on day trips as they are unsure whether the weather will allow them their stay there (but any suggestions welcome!).

Thanks in advance, Megan Brisbane, Australia
