since the US & Europe switch DST on adjacent weekends, a well planned trip can skip weird DST-change ∆1hr effects* inside larger timezone shifts.
there’s still winter “standard time” sunset before end of workdays and its problematic effects** (<17:00 here, and most of the U.S.).
one possible solution, for those who have the option, is to set a 16:00 end to the workday. e.g. change your "Working hours" in Google Calendar to end at 16:00 to at least discourage meetings after that: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/u/0/r/settings
