What cold weather tyres do you recommend for driving in Europe?

I need to take my Jag XF AWD once each year to Luxembourg during October. Do I need cold climate tyres and if so which do you recommend? Priorities are comfort and legal.

I would go for good all weather tyres and leave them on the car all year round. Continental Allseason Contacts, Michelin Cross Climate, Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons, Pirelli Scorpion Verde all season. Just make sure they have the mountains/snowflake symbol on the sidewall that makes them legal as 'cold weather tyres'.
