My girlfriend and I have an opportunity to spend an extended time in Europe this year. We'll probably do this in two legs, hitting both shoulder seasons.
Two things we're looking forward to are hiking in the Swiss Alps (Jungfrau region), and touring the Rhine & Moselle on bike and boats. Hoping folks here have thoughts on these...
- Is three weeks (total) a good time to allocate to these activities? If so, would you split the time evenly?
- Which of these windows gives us best odds of good weather--- mid-May to mid-June, or mid-Sept to mid-Oct?
- We'll spend a few days in Cologne after ride. Are Amsterdam or Munich good options after that, depending on season?
