Indeed, it's an awesome castle. I've posted more pictures with the castle here (splitted into 3 posts).

Yes, it's Umleitung. If there is an accident and the motorway is not drivable anymore, you can follow these U signs for Wien or Graz. These signs will lead you to the next motorway access interchange, in order to bypass the point where the motorway is blocked.

bogdymol started with S37, I'll continue with it. This May I traveled from Wien to Slovenia on S6-S36-S37 route to see alternative (not advisable).

1 - S36 begins as continuation of S6 after interchange with A9 at Sankt Michael.


2 - After pretty busy S6 S36 gets pretty empty.


3 - S36 has normal motorway parameters.


4 - Signs have pretty inconsistent form.


5 - Soon Gurktaler Alps are seen (I think)


6 - Mountains / Hills on the border of Steiermark and Kärnten from rest station (gasoline here was cheaper than on A-roads).


7 - Traffic is low but with quite some trucks


8 - It is really nice to see surroundings because there are not a lot of sound barriers.


9 - Here goes another alternative (even faster) from Wien to Klagenfurt.


10 - It was early afternoon.


11 - Judenburg is last town on S36.


12 - After just 38 km S36 ends here


13 - and continues as a normal Bundesstrasse 317 (can be still signed as S36 though)


14 - Because of many villages and towns overtaking is pretty limited.


15 - There are some short 1+2 sections


16 - or even 2+2

17 - Town of Unzmarkt


18 - Short tunnel before Schleifling


19 - Schleifling, intersection with Bundesstrasse 96 which leads to A10, also a border between S36 and S37. Intersection and signage is a bit confusing.


20 - After Schleifling finally some overtaking becomes possible on 2+1 sections. There is a lot of truck traffic.


21 - Narrow passage


22 - "No S37" banner


23 - Through gorges it becomes pretty slow.


24 - 30 km/h limit through town center of Neumarkt in der Steiermark


25 - about 400 m long 2+2 section


26 - another gorge


27 - end of Steiermark, beggining of Kärnten - and better road too!


28 - Schnellstrasse will begin now (at Friesach).


29 - 2+2 configuration for several kilometers


30 - After that exit 2+2 configuration ends but as I read it will start construction in near future (about 3 km remains to be upgraded here).

31 - Strange to see normal intersection accompanied with Schnellstrasse exit numbers.


32 - And here too.


33 - Tractors.


34 - From here 2+2 Schnellstrasse up to Klagenfurt (about 30 km).


35 - Some parts have narrower lanes


36 - other have normal width.


37 - After Hunnenbrunn exit on S37 vignette is obligatory.


38 - Center divider is painted green.


39 - Truck toll receivers


40 - Duke's Chair beside Schnellstrasse
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke%27s_Chair


41 - More traffic before Klagenfurt (still 5 km)


42 - Going to center of the city or onto A2


43 - Only 1+1 until A2


44 - Traffic light on ramp entering A2.

Very nice non motorway reportage .

My parents when returning home from Germany, were mislead by the GPS through Passau and all the way on the road besides the Danube to Linz, because from some reason, it took them on toll free roads. After Linz, they corrected the problem and drove on the motorway.

I also drove between Passau and Linz on that road near the Danube (not being misleaded by a GPS, I just wanted to drive on that bundesstrasse) and I can say they lost nothing by not driving on the motorway, the river bank road being quite spectacular.

Google got confused as well The whole S37 is named Klagenfurter Schnellstraße. S36 at least has both names on Schleifling-Judenburg section (Friesacher Bundesstraße and Murtal Schnellstraße).

nice photos. Klagenfurter Schnellstrasse is sometimes (when without median, and when 1+1) worse than Klagenfurter Strasse in Ljubljana

Now I will post another mostly non-motorway photo report from Austria.
That's the route I took from Bad Hofgastein to the hungarian border at Nickelsdorf:

Yes, that's the Dachstein massif, one of the most spectacular in the Alps. There are no roadworks there,the space on the left is reserved for the greatest mountain bike race in Austria, Salzkammergut Trophy,taking place on that Saturday.
