Didn't it also use to say "Prag/Praha" there? I could swear it was there when I drove there.

They do at the A9/A6 interchange. It should be signed here too, it looks a shorter route to me from München towards Praha to use A93/A6 than A9/A6...

Indeed it is and almost everyone here (Prague) uses it when travelling in direction München and therefore knows how the Autobahn between Holledau and Regensburg looks like. There is some 10 kms long stretch with narrow shoulder and some pretty curves with 120 kmh speed limit. But it's not such a big deal It is still a nice autobahn going through fields and woods of Oberpfalz

Looks like it's time for the U.S. to learn from Germany.

A quick question here for the Germans... I have been told that they close the motorway A1 between Hamburg and Bremen this weekend... I was supposed to take that route.. Is it true? I cant find any info on the net. I tried ADAC and google.

Anyone with more and clearer info?

Yes, they're closing the A1 every few weeks for the widening to 6-lanes.

This weekend, it's closed between Heidenau and Sittensen.

Hmmm, that's gonna give problems... A1 is heavily travelled on saturdays because of holiday traffic.

Well, not only during the summer, the A1 always sees significant weekend traffic during most of the year. Truck volumes are down, but that's compensated by recreational/social purpose traffic.

Funny ancient 20 km/h loop ramp on the A5/A66 interchange in Frankfurt am Main.
It became obsolete after the A648 was completed.

No no.
The A648 is older than the A66 east of AD Eschborn.
A66/A648 was just a upgrading of the old Wiesbaden-Frankfurt-Road.

See this old maps:
http://landkartenarchiv.de/generalkarte13_1958.htm
http://landkartenarchiv.de/falk_frankfurt1_1947.htm
(Click "Direkt zur Karte")

This little loop ramp is only for emergency, police and maintenance.

Typical example of an urban expressway in Germany, the B10 in Karlsruhe.

I'm not sure, but I think this may be the steepest grade on any Autobahn in Germany. (8%)

location: A7 Kassel - Bad Hersfeld.
