where to buy warm clothes?

Hi,

We will be landing in Switzerland on 27th April. We have selected Lucerne, Lauterbunnen and Lausanne as the bases for our 9 nights stay. Apart from other attractions, we plan to visit Mt Titlis and the Jungfraujoch also and hence, need warm clothes.

So, where can we buy warm clothes (not expensive, but reasonably priced ones) ? Can we get them at Coop or Migros at the stations? What are the other options available?

We dont have much use for the warm clothes once we get back home to our tropical climate and so we are looking at reasonably priced options only.

Help is appreciated a lot.

1. Re: where to buy warm clothes?

The best way to keep warm is to have a few layers of clothes, not just (not even) a big thick coat. If you have a cotton TShirt, a normal shirt or blouse and a light jumper or sweatshirt underneath a normal coat you will be warm enough. Basically what you wear at low altitude is fine, just extra layers of it, so take loose fitting stuff so you can add it on top of each other.

Large branches of Migros will sell all this stuff and Manor is also a reasonably priced department store. As it is just becoming Spring most shops will be switched over to sell summer clothing. This means limited choice, but you could find some old season stuff discounted. You won't find much at the station, it's better to go to the main shopping streets.
