I'll be visiting Switzerland in October. Lucerne will be my second stop. Where I come from, winter wear do not come cheap. Any advice on where to buy good and affordable winter wear such as coats, windbreakers etc in Lucerne?
When you are lucky you will not yet need any winterwear in October yet !
If not: its better to wear different thinner jackets etc. with a zip that you can wear above each other and zip or unzip parts of it according the the weather situation.
That is much better than a single warm jacket !
