Rhine/Mosel Valley & Bavaria in May or August?

Jump to last reply

Thoughts on whether Germany is better end of May or end of August?

Our basic itinerary is:
4-5 days Mosel/Rhine River Valleys. Most looking forward to spending one of the days doing a long (~55mi!) bike ride on the BernKastel -> Cochem Stretch, and otherwise seeing castles and scenery, walking/hiking the valley, and drinking wine!
4-6 days Bavaria. Some combination of Wurzburg, Bamberg, Rothenburg, Nuremberg, Munich, Mittenwald ... mostly walking whichever towns we choose, and hopefully a day trip to hike in the Alps.

I can either go the last couple weeks of May, or last couple weeks of August. I'm concerned about possible flooding/rainy weather in May, or overcrowding and hot weather in August. Thoughts?
