When is the best time to see Fall Colors in Berner Oberland?

Jump to last reply

I am a photographer and I am planning to visit Switzerland to photograph for the Fall colors and foliage. It will be my first time and I appreciate if you can share with me your experience. Is Berner Oberland the best place for Fall Colors? If so, when is the best week for the colors? Will it be the first week of October instead of the third week?

Someone also told me about Engadine. Do you know about this area? Is it similar to Berner Oberland? Does the changing of colors in Engadine happen more or less the same time as Berner Oberland or is it later?

I also read that there are mountain huts to stay where one can catch the sunrise and sunset shots. Is it affordable to stay in those places? Are there places you would recommend for easy access in catching the sunrise/sunset? I am planning to visit the hostels in the area and wonder if you have stayed in any of those before and find them assessable in doing photography at dawn or dusk, when I understand has the best lighting...
