Of course this is not a real warning or danger tip, but one of the ?be aware? kind, especially for the dreamer ones like me. This is the part of Bavaria which is close to the Alps and that means that weather can change quite quickly.
When I was here in early October 2011, I arrived at beautiful sunshine and rather warm temperatures (approx. 25°C all the time). The forecast was optimistic for the next days but dreaming me just didn?t think of changes... I heard that it would get colder at the end of my planned days and luckily I found a Tchibo shop (usually for coffee but also for other daily items) nearby where I could buy at least a new fleece jacket (although I have already several..., but at home). But even though the weather forecast said ?snow down to the lower regions?, my ?summer-programmed? brain didn?t realise that this can mean indeed snow. So I was shocked to put it mildly when I woke up on October 8 and saw snow on my bathroom window. Oh my... It stayed for a couple of hours but since the temperatures were not below freezing it didn?t stay. Luckily the temperatures were rising again on the following Sunday which made it easy for me to drive back home. Which was good because my car did not yet have snow tyres....

So be prepared. Bring warm clothes even if the forecast is good and sunny!
