At the weekend, drivers have to be prepared for sometimes lively tourist traffic, especially when the weather is nice. Autumn holidays begin in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and the center and south of the Netherlands. These are ongoing in Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland. On the way home there are drivers from Hamburg, Hesse, Schleswig-Holstein and the north of the Netherlands. In addition, there are likely to be a number of holidaymakers and day-trippers who also head for the hiking areas of the Alps and low mountain ranges and the coasts. On the other hand, vacationers rarely travel abroad because of the corona pandemic. Overall, autumn travel should therefore be significantly lower than in previous years.
The many autumn construction sites could cause delays in journeys. The ADAC has more than 700 construction sites on the autobahn alone. Depending on the time of year, drivers now have to take into account weather-related disabilities on the entire road network. Fog in particular sometimes significantly restricts the view. But travelers can also expect the onset of winter at this time of year.
The particularly busy highways (both directions):
- Fernstraßen zur und von der Nord- und Ostsee - A1 Hamburg - Bremen - A1 / A3 /A4 Kölner Ring - A2 Dortmund - Hannover - A3 Köln - Frankfurt - Nürnberg - Passau - A4 Erfurt - Dresden - Görlitz - A5 Hattenbacher Dreieck - Karlsruhe - Basel - A6 Mannheim - Heilbronn - Nürnberg - A7 Flensburg - Hamburg - A7 Hamburg - Hannover - Würzburg - Füssen/Reutte - A8 Karlsruhe - Stuttgart - München - Salzburg - A9 Halle/Leipzig- Nürnberg - München - A10 Berliner Ring - A24 Hamburg - Berlin - A61 Mönchengladbach - Koblenz - Ludwigshafen - A72 Leipzig - Chemnitz - Hof - A93 Kufstein - Inntaldreieck - A95/B 2 München - Garmisch-Partenkirchen - A96 München - Lindau - A 99 Umfahrung München
Because of the ongoing corona crisis, travel is also lower overall in neighboring countries. However, car tourists will not always have free travel on the classic Tauern, Fernpass, Brenner, Rheintal and Gotthard routes. Anyone planning a trip over one of the popular Alpine passes must expect that one or the other is already closed due to winter conditions. 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.
