Return journey to Berlin and Brandenburg
Foci of current traffic jams are Berlin, Hamburg, Rhine-Ruhr, Rhine-Main, Stuttgart and Munich, as well as the routes to and from the German coasts. In addition, drivers must expect congestion on the following routes (both in both directions):
The situation in the south: Also for the transit routes in Austria and in Switzerland, the clubs expect long traffic jams – in northern and southern direction. Focal points in Austria are the A10 (Tauern), the A11 (Karawanken) A12 (Inntal-), the Fernpass, the A13 (Burner) and the A14 (Rheintalautobahn). It should be the most on Friday from 13 clock, on Saturday between 10 and 18 clock and on Sunday between 11 and 16 clock. In addition comes the driving ban for trans-regional transit traffic on some highways in Tyrol and Salzburg, For example, the exits between Hall and Zirl on the Inntalautobahn (A12) as well as at Patsch and at Gries am Brenner on the Brenner motorway (A13) are not used for through traffic, informs the ACE. Of the driving restrictions in Salzburg is the A10 particularly affected. On Saturday and Sunday noon, the traffic in the north before the border crossings is likely to stagnate back to Germany. The infrastructure company ASFINAG provides information on waiting times.
