Yes, same size wheel, same circumference, same rubber height... but 205 is narrower, and the taller narrower ratio is good for winter. I think I run 205/55R16 winters on my 9-5 and 225/45R17 in summer. I would think Continental would make a good "German winter" tire - ie great for a wide range of conditions, not quite so focused on extreme winter conditions like they have in Scandinavia or here in Canada, but good for most of what we see (most city roads in southern Canada are regularly plowed and salted heavily anyway). Ymmv, but probably this applies in your neck of the woods also.
