Maybe because foreigners are more likely to know Salzburg than Linz? I have no idea. But Salzburg is known all over the world and an important (2nd only to Vienna) tourist destination.

What cities are signed on the northbound A9 in Graz? Do you have pictures?

I'm not saying Salzburg shouldn't be signed, but Linz should be too. If I had to choose just one, it would be Linz. In the city I've only seen Salzburg signed; as for A9, I don't have pics, but if you come from Maribor, Linz isn't signed at all, when you can turn for Vienna. Only when you can turn for Klagenfurt, Linz also appears. I usually don't go for Linz/Salzburg there, so I didn't notice it before.

Both Salzburg and Linz are not directly on A9, but Salzburg is far more off the A9 route, so Linz would make more sense. Wels is probably too small to sign all the way from Graz.

You don't necessarily have to continue on A8 or go to Germany anyway. There are people (particularly Austrians) who actually go to the city of Linz.

I like this rail overpass. Altough the color may seem boring, but I guess its more economical to maintain it that way.

A10 Salzburg-Villach, Tauernautobahn

Since there are hardly any alternatives for the Tauerntunnel when going to Bled we decided just to take it but pass through on a quiet moment. This was on a quiet fridaymorning, so no problems at all. The motorway itself wasn't busy anyway.

Here we go:

1. I know, this isn't the A10 yet



2. Unsharp, but enough to see that this wasn't a clear day.



3.



4. Bridge ahead.



5. We're following Villach.



6. I like this kind of viaducts.



7. Again unsharp, but "Co ke" is still visible



8. Baustelle



9. It's getting somewhat hilly



10.



11. Still climbing.



12. Almost driving in the clouds.



13. Raststation Lungau ahead. We had coffee over there.



14. The tollstation for the Tauern- and Katschbergtunnel. I forgot to make pictures of the Tauerntunnel



15. Northern entrance of the Katschbergtunnel. It has got two tubes now



16. South of the Katschbergtunnel,



17. Austrian and Slovene vignette. We bought the Austrian one in the Netherlands, and the Slovene one at the tollstation for the Tauern- and Katschbergtunnel.



18.



19. Almost empty.



20. Houses on the slope.



21. Some blue sky



22.



23. Exit Gmünd, just north of Spittal.



24. Only a caravan and a truck in front of us.



25. Ah, as well as some cars



26. Empty again.



27. Wolfsbergtunnel.



28.



29. It can be busy on this motorway, but this morning it wasn't



30.



31.



32.



33.



34. Knoten Villach 23 km



35.



36. Caravan.



37.



38. Knoten Villach. We follow "Slowenien"



39. We turn right here.



That's it, I hope you liked it

Thanks for the nice photos!

I was passing through on the A10 Sunday night and southbound Katschbergtunnel had a variable speed limit set to 60kph and the left lane closed for no apparent reason. About 1000ft before the exit the limit was raised back to 100kph on both lanes.

Even at 3am there were delays at Tauerntunnel, so I took the scenic route and entered the A10 again at the main toll plaza.

(btw, if it weren't for the signs I could have sworn I was in .de or .nl)

Mountains in the Netherlands? Germany isn't very mountainous either.

Nice pics, Timon, it's my favorite Austrian motorway.

Yeah It was quite a coincidence that the largest piece of dirt was directly in front of "Slowenien". The windshield got worse though (wait for the A2 and A1 pics from Slovenia), because we hiked near Rudno Polje, and they were building a biathlon stadiom + hotel over there. The car was full of dirt and dust when we returned

A11 Villach-Karawankentunnel, Karawankenautobahn

The A11 is a short (21 km) motorway that connects the Karawankentunnel to the Austrian motorway network. Usually it's quiet, but during holidays waiting times for the tunnel can reach a few hours.

I've resized the pictures to 800×600 pixels, because I got some complaints on the Wegenforum. Different forumsoftware is used for that forum, so people with a small screen could only see part of the pictures.

1. End of the A10, beginning of the A11.



2. Today is a quiet day.



3. Exit St. Niklas an der Drau. There are only two exits on this motorway, and a Raststätte.



4. No shoulder, but this is not as irritating as on the German A8, for example.



5. Some cars.



6.



7. Second, and last, exit of the A11: St. Jakob im Rosental.



8. Short section with a shoulder.



9.



10. Do we really need a vignette for Slovenia?



11. Tollstation ahead.



12. This is probably what used to be the border control.



13. €6,50 for us. We spent almost 90 euros on tolls this holiday.



14. Shortly after the tollstation.



15. Approaching the tunnel, 2×1 now.



16. Entrance of the tunnel. It's quite funny that even without signs in the tunnel the border would have been clearly visible: the Slovene side is much darker. Still it's not as dark as the Tauerntunnel, which was the most horrible tunnel of the holiday. The most beautiful tunnels were the new tunnels of the Trieste bypass.



That's it. Hope you liked it!
