Munich (ots) - The coming weekend, Germany's motorways will be lively at times. The roads in southern Germany are particularly affected. Because of Corpus Christi (holiday on Thursday, June 11th, in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, in parts of Saxony and Thuringia and in Saarland) and a “bridge day” on Friday, some drivers start on Wednesday afternoon into the long weekend. Since air travel and car trips abroad are still only possible to a limited extent, many Germans will opt for a short trip in their own country or for day trips.

Towards the end of the long weekend, the Baden-Württemberg and Bavarian Pentecost vacationers come back from the two-week vacation, although this year there should be significantly fewer travelers than in previous years. The return journey begins in the second half of the week and reaches its peak on Saturday, June 13th. Then traffic jams in particular form in southern Germany and on the routes heading north. On Sunday afternoons, the homecomers from the short vacation are mainly bustling on Germany's trunk roads. The southern German trunk roads and metropolitan highways are particularly affected. When the weather is nice, traffic jams on the roads to the local recreation areas and to the coasts are programmed on Saturday and Sunday.
