I was there at the end of May, so I think the rainy time.
That's just the tail end of spring, so it makes sense. I'll be going the end of October and into mid-November this year, so I'll have to see what the weather is like then. I hope it doesn't rain too much. I'm looking forward to it being the off season and having to deal with fewer fellow travellers.
 
I have just returned from my sixth trip to Europe (always great). Here is an early morning shot from Colmar, France.
Canon 5D4 with 16-35 f4L IS at 30mm (on a tripod), f11 and ISO 100.
Main picture (buildings, canal, street) is 1/4 second.
Sky is 1/40 second to get a little color.
Moon is 1/100 second to get a little crater detail.
All combined manually in Photoshop Elements 12, where I also boosted contrast and color in main (buildings) layer.

Turku, Finland
Historical industrial milieu in Tampere, Finland. Nowadays the waterfront buildings house restaurants, museums, art galleries and other attractions.

80D with Tokina 11-16mm/2.8 at 13mm. 10sec f/11 ISO 100, 30 frames median stacked in Photoshop to smooth out the water. Basic adjustments in Lightroom. The snow illuminated by the warm yellowish lamps could probably use some selective color temp adjustment to make it look more natural.

I just finished working on a photo I took in February in Colmar. It's a waiting room on the platform at the train station. I did some adjustments from the RAW file to even things out and it looked pretty good. Then I opened Nik ColorEfex4 and tried the bleach bypass filter and wow! This is the result. That filter doesn't work with most images (in my experience), but when it does work it completely transforms a photo.

5D4 with 16-35 f4L IS (handheld at ISO 800 with lens at 16mm and f/4).
