in all countries in between UK and the alps, including Germany, studded tyres are forbidden all year round. So you would have to change tyres after crossing the border to France, Switzerland or Austria. Even then it remains complicated:
In France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria, they are legal only within a limited period, for instance in Switzerland from 1st November until 30th March, in Austria from 1st October until 31st May, in Italy between 15th October and 15th April. A special sticker on the back side of the car must indicate the studded tyres, and special speed limits apply. In Switzerland studded tyres are not allowed on motorways.
All in all, I would recommend to use good winter tyres without studs, and to take snow chains with you.
