Burg Eltz Sunday July 20: Rain Forecast

We planned to visit Burh Eltz this coming Sunday and the weather forecasts consistently show light rain for that day. Is it still worth it, or leave for next time? My greatest expectation of the visit is to walk through the forest and see the castle 'emerge' through the woods. is that spoiled on rainy days?

No weather forecast is accurate a week in advance. Better not worry about it too early.

Besides, there is no bad weather, there is only wrong clothing.

thank you, but will the low clouds kill the 'view'? Just trying to figure out whether to 'launch plan B' if we wake up on sunday and its rainy and cloudy

Since the castle is located in a small valley among the hills and not on a mountain top, the views will still be there, though a bit greyish, if it is rainy. However, this far in advance no one can provide a reliable forecast. Pack some rain gear, just in case.

If thunderstorms are announced I would not do the hike. Light rain or showers are not really a hindrance.

If you are asking my opinion, go! It is such a great hike and an amazing day and place. Cloud's didn't ruin it at all. Many of the day's say rain and their might well be a small shower but very few will be raining all day.

Check the weather forecast on Friday or Saturday, but not earlier than that.
