By getting off the Autobahn and find good vantage points. I do it a lot in the Netherlands, but not on international trips because it takes too much time.

If I do a road trip I don't stop much. Last Tuesday I did a 10.5 hour road trip and I stopped only briefly three times, one time to gas up at an Autohof, one time to take a leak and the final time to visit McDonald's.

I bet you didn't find at the McDonald's you stopped the Romanian-style McMici.

Hi, as for A13 I was just walking round the reststation behind the bridge, the hill with the memorial chapel included. As for previous pictures from Vienna, the best way is to ride a bicycle.....The remunaration is the different point of view of Austrian capital.....

Here's some more info:

(Asfinag has very "professional" URLs on their website, this URL has 396 characters...)

Only the first 1/3 or so of the url is needed (up to but not including the question mark). The rest just passes information (for example, about you, your computer, your session, etc.) to their server.

That's a very old sign. They are gradually being replaced in Austria as we speak. Even the fonts are changing. A great deal has been replaced in Tirol in the last few months.

That sign is about 7 years old and I'm sure it won't be changed very soon.

And don't forget about this:

Am I supposed to drive to CZ via Bratislava? Sure, it would be all motorway, but still 70 km longer and requiring an another vignette?

No, they just don't want you to cause congestion on A23.

I thought the bottleneck here was crossing the Danube, and one still needs A23 to do so - unless one goes to Bratislava.

^ I meant the southern/western part of A23 - between A2 and A4.

Apparently the congestion problem isn't that bad at A4, then.

Both the A4 and A23 can be relieved of a lot of traffic, especially truck traffic, by extending the S31 to the A4, parallel to the B50.
