St2373 (D) -> L23 (A), crossing into Austrian functional exclave of Jungholz.

St2373 is a connector road between B310 and the border.
Jungholz is an Austrian piece of land that is connected to the rest of Austria by a single point only (i.e. not even a telephone cable could be laid between the two without touching German territory), making it a "functional exclave". This had some implications (and still has): Before Austria's EU accession, Jungholz was part of the German customs territory, it has German VAT and before the Euro, used the DM as its currency. Also, its population is about half Austrian, half German.

I guess the border crossings to Germany were never manned.


1. There is no Austria sign right at the border (there is one 1km back). German border signs visible to the left (larger squared one: country name in EU flag, smaller round one: Bundesadler). Border line is clearly visible by the change in road surface. It is indicated by small white signs on the bridge guard rail.




2. The border sign on the bridge




3. Driven up about 300m into Austrian territory and looking back. Border and German signs visible at the bend in the distance.




Taken these photos in 2017.

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.
