That's a matter of personal opinion - I say the A1 is the most boring (except of course that small hilly section at the beginning in Vienna and the part in Salzkammergut - the latter of which you don't actually see because of the concrete barriers). Of course, the A1 is the motorway on which I've traveled the most too!

i agree with this. actually, i think it because when i first traveled to Austria, i've been expecting thousands of tunnels and viaducts and alpine surrounding, and it was missing at my trip to Wien. so bitter taste stayed. (things got better when i traveled from Graz to Voralpenkreuz, but i cannot change first impression of A2)

A2 is not boring at all, at least to me. Maybe u r traveling to often, change the route
and there are nice mountains 100km after Vienna, and castle also, and when u come close to Vienna it is 3x3 or 4x4 i have forgoten and close to Graz u have this noise protection experiment, well it is not boring at all.

Believe me, I'm not hurt.

However, I do believe that A2 is not the most boring part of the Austrian system. It must be A1 between St.Pölten and Linz.

agree, but still it is not boring, coz there are almost always road constructions and lot of exits.

Which makes it even more boring. 80 kph is not exactly breathtaking... 1 hr between W and P shows that A1 could be way better...

It's hard to notice in these forums. Perhaps there are ppl who really think constructions are exciting.

I HATE jams. Pure nightmare. I like driving, not being stuck. It makes me very nervous.

it hard to drive in jams. this year i've been driving for the first time in traffic jam at section long about 270 km. it is fun first 20-30 km, but then it becomes extremely exhausting. you're driving parallely with vehicles in left lane (or right if you are in left), no classic overtaking because it depends which lane goes faster in that moment, it's exhausting if you wanna be concentrated. and then we had 3 jams (1 accident and 2 tunnels)... i didn't like it at all. especially because you cannot see the beauty of motorway and around it while you're concentrated 100% on traffic.

i like when there is some baustelle and when short 2 km moving jam appears (of course, i hate it when i', in hurry )

I do like strawberry or apricot jam, but traffic jams... no, thanks.

It took me 12 hrs to go from Vienna to Split last year. About 4 hours were lost in SI, another three in HR in front of a tunnel in the Velebit area....
Not nice...

A 2 - 4km traffic jam which is moving slow, isn't such a big problem. But i hate those 10 - 40km traffic jams we have where you just don't move an inch in several minutes.
