ADAC traffic jam forecast for March 31 to April 2 / Ten federal states start their holidays
If you are on the road this weekend, you will hardly escape the traffic jam. Ten federal states and some neighboring states start the Easter holidays, which will lead to sometimes heavy traffic on the metropolitan area highways and the most important travel routes on Friday afternoon and Saturday. The schools close in Bavaria, Berlin, Brandenburg, Hesse, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. Bremen and Lower Saxony have been on vacation for a week.
Most holidaymakers go to the Alps, to southern countries or to the coasts. The ADAC expects the travel peaks on Friday afternoon, on Saturday and Sunday in the morning and afternoon until the evening hours.
These are the particularly heavily used routes in Germany:
• A 1 Hamburg – Bremen – Dortmund – Cologne
• A 1/A 3/A 4 Kölner Ring
• A 2 Oberhausen – Dortmund – Hanover – Berlin
• A 3 Oberhausen – Frankfurt – Würzburg – Nuremberg – Passau
• A 4 Kirchheimer Dreieck – Erfurt – Dresden
• A 5 Hattenbacher Dreieck – Frankfurt – Karlsruhe – Basel
• A 6 Mannheim – Heilbronn – Nürnberg
• A 7 Hamburg – Hanover – Würzburg – Ulm – Füssen/Reutte
• A 7 Hamburg – Flensburg
• A 8 Karlsruhe – Stuttgart – Munich – Salzburg
• A 9 Berlin – Nuremberg – Munich
• A 10 Berliner Ring
• A 61 Mönchengladbach – Koblenz – Ludwigshafen •
• A 93 Inntal triangle – Kufstein
• A 95/B 2 Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen
• A 99 Munich bypass
On the long-distance routes of the neighboring Alpine countries there is also lively traffic at times and in sections. Among other things, the holidays are now starting in all Austrian federal states. The same applies to some Swiss regions. The Brenner, Tauern and Gotthard routes are at risk of congestion. The federal roads in and out of the winter sports centers are also overcrowded at times. Expect waiting times of around 30 minutes at the main border crossings.
