At the turn of the month, drivers can expect largely free roads and few traffic jams in many places. The number of construction sites is decreasing and tourist traffic is also very restrained. Despite the start of the autumn vacation in Bavaria and the end of the vacation in Baden-Württemberg, Saxony and Thuringia, the ADAC Corona expects little traffic. At most in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, where there are still two days off school after the weekend, there could be a little more going on regionally.
The two regional holidays, Reformation Day on October 31 (in Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia, Bremen, Hamburg, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein) and All Saints’ Day on November 1 (in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria , North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland) will also only slightly stimulate excursion traffic according to the ADAC. Nevertheless, there is a driving ban for trucks over 7.5 tonnes on Reformation Day in the eastern holiday regions. The regular Sunday driving ban applies nationwide on Sunday.
However, the weather could cause disabilities: Drivers must now be prepared for suddenly appearing fields of fog, freezing moisture or snow.
The highways at risk of congestion:
- A1 Bremen - Hamburg - A3 Passau - Nürnberg - Frankfurt - A4 Erfurt - Chemnitz - Dresden - A5 Basel - Karlsruhe - Hattenbacher Dreieck - A6 Heilbronn - Nürnberg - A7 Füssen/Reutte - Ulm - Würzburg und Flensburg - Hamburg - A8 Salzburg - München - Stuttgart - A9 München - Nürnberg - Halle/Leipzg - A10 Berliner Ring - A81 Singen - Stuttgart - A93 Kufstein - Inntaldreieck - A99 Umfahrung München
In neighboring countries, the traffic situation is relaxed this weekend. At the borders, waiting times due to intensive personal controls are to be expected. Anyone who comes back from risk regions must be prepared for quarantine measures.
