End of vacation: on these roads in Franconia there is a risk of traffic jams at the weekend – region

– For some people, the summer vacation was long ago. In the south of Germany, however, the school-free period is only now ending, which, among other things, causes a lot of traffic on the motorways in northern Bavaria. The situation is easing elsewhere.


Once again, some drivers have to be very patient. Next weekend, 10. until September 12th, threatens the “last big wave of travel” of summer vacation traffic according to the ADAC.

The holidays come to an end in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria and parts of Austria. The returnees are particularly noticeable on the motorways in southern Germany and on the transit routes there through Switzerland and Austria, confirms the Auto Club Europa (ACE).


On the other hand, the situation on the routes into the Alps and to the Mediterranean should be “noticeably relaxed”, according to the ACE. That should be good news for everyone who starts outside the main travel season regardless of vacation dates. However, road closures nationwide and the 966 motorway construction sites counted by the ADAC can cause delays. In addition, the routes around popular excursion areas fill up on Saturday and Sunday.

When is it worth bypassing on an alternative route?

It should be busiest on Friday afternoon, Saturday morning and early afternoon as well as Sunday afternoon. The car clubs refer to mobility apps for travel planning. These can make it possible to avoid traffic jams at an early stage. It can also be used to determine when it may be worthwhile to detour on an alternative route.

Within Germany, the ACE recommends informing yourself about the regulations of the respective federal states. This also applies to travel restrictions and quarantine rules when traveling abroad. Information on this is available from the Federal Foreign Office, among others.


ACE and ADAC expect delays and traffic jams (mostly in both directions) around the greater Munich and Stuttgart areas as well as on the routes to and from the North Sea and Baltic Sea and on the following sections:

A 1 Puttgarden – Hamburg – Bremen
A 3 Frankfurt / Main – Nuremberg – Passau
A 5 Frankfurt/Main – Karlsruhe – Basel
A 6 Mannheim – Heilbronn – Nuremberg
A 7 Flensburg – Hamburg and Würzburg – Ulm –
Füssen / Reutte
A 8 Stuttgart – Munich – Salzburg
A 9 Halle / Leipzig – Nuremberg – Munich
A 61 Koblenz – Ludwigshafen
A 81 Singing – Stuttgart – Heilbronn
A 93 Inntal triangle – Kufstein
A 95 Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen
A 96 Lindau – Munich
A 99 Munich bypass

In Austria and Switzerland, too, the traffic clubs predict a high risk of traffic jams on the routes towards southern Germany. The heavily traveled routes include the Tauern, Fernpass, Brenner, Karawanken, Rheintal and Gotthard routes. If you have to wait longer than an hour in front of the Gotthard tunnel, you can think about the alternative route Chur – San Bernardino (A 13), advises the ACE.

Random checks at the borders are possible

Travelers should also be prepared for random checks at the borders. In addition to the ACE, the ADAC also provides information on travel requirements within and outside of Germany on its website.
