I have guests and have no idea what to do with them on Whit Monday. Will all the shopping be closed on Bahnoffstrasse? Thats all they want to do on the last day of their trip to Switzerland.

any ideas, suggestions? Please...

Switzerland is closed on bank holidays.

Take them to a pub.

Anywhere that's open on a Sunday will be open on Monday, so the bahnhof shops will still be open.

Looks like the weather is going to be fabulous! Why don't you have a picnic on the Uetliberg or by the lake? Can't wait for the sunshine

Re: What? Monday? Whit's open?

I'm with cyrus and nadinebreen go for some beers, or do something outdoors or both.

Re: whit monday-whats open?
