The idea with the Dreiländereck I have for longer time

Well, Austria has official Easter like the Catholic one, also official free day.
I know very well when Orthodox Easter is, since I come from such a country

I'm not a big fan of the new Asfinag site layout. Like Norways Statens Vegvesen, they have a huge banner on top of the main page that pretty much takes up the entire screen. All relevant information is only visible when you scroll down. Additionally, the main page loads rather slow.

I was thinking just the same the other day, when I was looking for some information regarding the new Anschlussstelle Landstraßer Gürtel in Vienna. Had to use the search function...

Count me in with that sentiment. The old style was MUCH better... But they seem to change their webpage once a year, so soon the layout will be gone again anyway.

Quick question

Coming from Vienna to Graz, is there any significant difference in time (assuming driving at around 110km/h) if you take the S6/S39/A9 route as opposed to the A2 route?

I drove the A2 route two years ago, so I'd like to try the alternative route (and also drive that tunnel under Graz!) if there isn't a significant time penalty...

I drove both in December. The alternative you suggested is more curvy and has many tunnels, but it's really nice. I don't think there is much time difference.

Yes, this alternative route (S6-S35-A9) has many tunnels and it is more curvy however the landscape (Alps) is more attractive comparing with A2. Definitely not boring. It is only slightly longer. In the direction from Vienna the first section passes Semmering (very nice), the second section (S6) it is the (wide) valley of the river Muerz and the third section from Bruck an der Mur (S35) is really nice again (quite deep valley of the river Mur)....

I would suggest that if you do not seek for the fastest way Wien-Graz....

Partially it is also the alternative route Wien-Klagenfurt (S6-S36-B317-S37)....

Today I noticed that even narrow dirt/grassy roads through fields are equipped with side delineators in Austria.
