Hello, can someone give advice on tyres please ?
We visited Berchtesgaden by car in October last year, staying at the Intercontinental for 5 days. We drove from the U.K and our car was fitted with all weather tyres. The weather was good and touring the area in the car was fine. All the roads were superb.
We are planning a trip,by car, to Dresden for a week and then motoring to Berchtesgaden and staying again at the Intercontinental.
I have a 4 wheel drive car but have no " Winter tyres " It is not a requirement in the U.K. and our winter weather doesn't justify the purchase or need of them. My all-weather tryes will be brand new as I have arranged for 4 new ones to be fitted at the Glaserne Manufaktur whilst in Dresden.
I realise this is hard to answer but any ideas what the weather might be like arriving on 17th March ? Do you think I will need winter tyres, especially on that climb to the Intercontinental ?
May I just add, that I do know that it is a " requirement "in Deutschland to have winter tyres fitted from October through to March. However many of my German friends in Dresden usually start to consider changing to their all round tyres by mid-March....if the weather has warmed up of course.
Can anyone remember if their was still ice and snow around in late March last year ?
Many thanks for any help or advice given.
