These signs are quite common on German roads, but what do they mean? Of are they a relic of the Cold War?

If I'm not mistaken those are maximum weights for military vehicles (in tonnes). Left is for 2 vehicles, right is for one.

I believe they are maximum tonnage indications from the Cold War per vehicle type. They are not actual tonnage indications, but are classes. They are close to tonnage though. It also depends if they have tracks or regular wheels.

I've seen such a sign in Hjallerup, not too far from where i live, but why would they put those signs in Denmark?

They can be found at most bridges in West Germany. The Federal administration is removing them slowly on the Autobahnen and Bundesstraßen, but they'll probably remain at other bridges and roads.

I have seen on pictures that Kosovo had copied this concept as well.

Historic German Roads (Handelstrasse)

Hi,

Firstly: My apologies to the mods if this thread is in the wrong place.

I'm researching the course of the Peasants' War or Der Deutsche Bauernkrieg of 1525, tracing the movements of the rebels as they moved from village to village and from town to town through Franconia, around Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the Steigerwald, and along the Main on the approach to Wuerzburg.

However, looking at Google Earth, almost every single minor road looks realigned and suspiciously straight. I am wondering, are old (1500s) roads still extant and used in Germany? The landscape looks so planned and regulated as to make me think that the old roads are no more.

I am interested, for example, in the location of the old medieval road between Rothenburg and Ansbach, and between Rothenburg and Nuremburg; I am interested in finding the road from Roettingen to Wuerzburg; and also the one from Wildentierbach to Heidingsfeld. In the case of the last example, Google Maps gives this as the modern best route by car: but is this the historical road used in 1525?

Many thanks for your answers. I look forward to your replies. Also, if anyone can suggest a purchasable late medieval map of the area that shows roads, that would be great!

Does this really require a special thread? You could've asked in the German thread, historic thread or even in the off-topic thread.

Then let a mod move it if they wish.

What are the intentions of the second Cabinet Merkel for German Autobahns?
