Tourist traffic: traffic jam forecast: construction sites have high season

Berlin/Munich.
The travel wave is still slowly rolling in. Motorists will be largely free to drive on German trunk roads next weekend. In the direction of the coasts, however, it could get narrower.

Above all, the numerous construction sites will bring motorists to a standstill on the motorways next weekend (May 20th to 22nd). According to the ADAC, they are now in high season – there are more than 1000. When the weather is nice, excursion traffic can be expected, especially on Sundays.

In addition, the one-week spring break begins in Saxony-Anhalt and Hamburg. The Auto Club Europa (ACE) assumes that things will get tight, especially around Hamburg and on the routes towards the German coast.

ACE often considers delays and traffic jams to be possible in both directions, particularly on the following routes:

a 1

Cologne – Dortmund – Bremen – Hamburg – Lübeck

A 2

Hanover – Dortmund

A 3

Oberhausen – Cologne – Frankfurt/Main – Würzburg – Nuremberg

A 5

Frankfurt/Main – Karlsruhe

A 6

Mannheim – Heilbronn – Nuremberg

A 7

Hamburg – Hanover and Würzburg – Ulm – Füssen/Reutte

A 8

Karlsruhe – Stuttgart – Munich – Salzburg

A 9

a 10

A 81

Heilbronn – Stuttgart – Singing

A 93

Rosenheim-Kiefersfelden

A95

Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen

A 96

Kreuz Memmingen

A 99

Bypass Munich

According to the ADAC, the classic foreign routes will be largely freely passable next weekend. But there are now many construction sites there, too. Anyone planning an Alpine road tour should know that many passes are currently still closed and will only be released later in May or even in June.


Drivers can find out in advance about the waiting times at the border crossings Walserberg, Kiefersfelden and Suben from the Austrian infrastructure company ASFINAG on-line inform.


In Switzerland, according to ACE, traffic jams can occur in front of the Gotthard tunnel (A 2) on Saturday in the late morning hours, but the waiting time is manageable.
