Munich (ots) - At the weekend, drivers have to be prepared for sometimes lively travel, especially when the weather is nice. Autumn holidays begin in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and the center and south of the Netherlands. These are continuing 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 as well as the coasts. On the other hand, vacationers rarely travel abroad because of the corona pandemic. All in all, 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 have to take into account weather-related obstacles on the entire road network. Fog in particular sometimes significantly restricts the view. But travelers must also expect the onset of winter at this time of the year.

The particularly busy highways (both directions):

- trunk roads to and from the North and Baltic Seas
- A1 Hamburg - Bremen
- A1 / A3 / A4 Cologne Ring
- A2 Dortmund - Hanover
- A3 Cologne - Frankfurt - Nuremberg - Passau
- A4 Erfurt - Dresden - Görlitz
- A5 Hattenbacher Dreieck - Karlsruhe - Basel
- A6 Mannheim - Heilbronn - Nuremberg
- A7 Flensburg - Hamburg
- A7 Hamburg - Hanover - Würzburg - Füssen / Reutte
- A8 Karlsruhe - Stuttgart - Munich - Salzburg
- A9 Halle / Leipzig- Nuremberg - Munich
- A10 Berliner Ring
- A24 Hamburg - Berlin
- A61 Mönchengladbach - Koblenz - Ludwigshafen
- A72 Leipzig - Chemnitz - Hof
- A93 Kufstein - Inntal triangle
- A95 / B 2 Munich - Garmisch-Partenkirchen
- A96 Munich - Lindau - A 99 Munich bypass Due to 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.
