We have a concert in Munich beginning at 4 pm in mid-to late December - right after the concert we would like to pick up our rental car and drive to Ramsau.
We are concerned about road conditions and light as we do not have any experience driving in Bavaria - here in Canada we drive in -25 celsius, freezing weather, windchill - we travel at night on the massive Trans-Canada highway, but in that weather, we try to avoid it when it is dark outside because of snow drift on the highways, and sheer black ice sometimes on the road.
What time will it get dark in mid-to-late December? It t sounds like there is no snow now, with temperatures just above zero (though that can change). Is it reasonable to try to drive from Munich city centre beginning at about 6 or 7 pm to try to get to Ramsau for about 9 pm? It will surely be dark by then.
Our other option is just to stay another night in Munich and go out in the morning but this will be more rushed with us having to get up much earlier, as we need to be in Ramsau for 11 am and not any later. What time would we have to start our drive from Munich if we leave in the morning on a Sunday or Monday?
Please reply if you have experience on the roads at this time of year.
Thank you everyone!
