The winter holiday traffic ensures a high volume of traffic on the highways on the weekend from February 17th to 19th. Traffic will also stall around the carnival strongholds.
The heavy holiday traffic does not stop on the weekend from February 17th to 19th. The ADAC expects long columns to the ski areas, as the holidays begin in Saarland, Bavaria, parts of Baden-Württemberg and the Netherlands and the second week in Saxony begins. In addition, more and more day and weekend trips to the low mountain range and the Alps are expected. In addition, due to the heavy return traffic, the Verkehrsclub expects traffic jams and slow-moving traffic on the following routes:
• A 3 Frankfurt - Würzburg - Nuremberg
• A 4 Leipzig - Erfurt - Kirchheimer Dreieck
• A 5 Frankfurt - Karlsruhe - Basel
• A 6 Heilbronn - Nuremberg
• A 7 Kassel - Würzburg - Füssen
• A 8 Karlsruhe - Stuttgart - Munich - Salzburg
• A 9 Leipzig - Nuremberg - Munich
• A 72 Chemnitz - Hof
• A 81 Stuttgart - Singen
• A 93 Inntaldreieck - Kufstein
• A 95 Munich - Garmisch-Partenkirchen
• A 99 Munich bypass
In addition, the carnivalists ensure high traffic volumes in a number of cities and towns also smaller places. There are road closures due to carnival parades. The ADAC recommends leaving your car behind and switching to public transport.
There is also a lot of holiday activity in Austria. The most important motorways, the Fernpass route and the federal highways in Vorarlberg, Tyrol and Salzburg will be heavily used. In Switzerland, this applies to the Gotthard route, the St. Gallen - Zurich - Bern connection and direct access to the winter sports areas - in Italy to the Brenner motorway and the roads into Val Pusteria, Val Gardena and Val Badia.
