Michelle here. I wanted to know if you could recommend any factory outlets in Switzerland? I know about the Fox Factory but would be interested in more.
Fashion Outlets in Switzerland
I now of two more outlet factories in the areas you plan to visit, as well as one open air market that is definitely interesting:
Fashionfish in Schönenwerd (vis-à-vis the train station) is an outlet that sells all known international labels. Located between Basel and Zürich. You have to change the train in Olten and take a regional train that will stop in Schönenwerd. www.fashionfish.ch.
Outletpark Murgenthal: 20 stores with more than 100 top brands. Check the opening hours before you go. Murgenthal is situated near Rothrist (between Basel and Lucerne). Again, you would have to change trains in Olten and hop on a regional train that will stop in Murgenthal. Not sure, how far away from the train station the outlet is situated. www.outletpark.ch
Something more "old fashion" would be a visit in Luino (Italy). Its weekly market on Wednesday’s is probably the largest of its kind in all of Europe, at least the most colourful one. It’s approximately one hour by train and bus from Lugano. I know you plan to leave Lugano on May 1st, but if you do change your plans, the Luino Market really would be worth your while.
Just type a word or phrase into the box and off you go!
