The Roads are being re-laid in most of the Autobahns ,before the winter. Some stretches the speed limit is 80Km/hr now. Just drove back from Munich to Frankfurt.

I was stuck on Autobahn 5 near Freiburg when my GPS kept bringing me to the same place where the road was closed for repair. That was one time I remembered the good old maps!

Default The German Autobahn

Just came across this BBC article on the (in)famous German Autobahn. The last place in Europe where you enjoy unrestricted speeds on public road!

It comes under more and more political pressure, but so far, there is still thousands of miles left where you can, legally, put the pedal to the metal!
