Road conditions in Northeastern Germany (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state) are treacherous. Several Kreise are completely snowed-in and all roads are impassable. Only Autobahnen and Bundesstrassen are plowed, and they don't even manage to keep up there, the A20 is closed in two areas, as well as B96 to Stralsund, which means Rügen is inaccessible.

Oh my god, what the hell happened there?? Don't they have enough machinery to keep it intact? I mean if Germany is known for something then one of the first things that comes to my mind is how good the road maintainance is. That just looks weird.

Obviously, they can't be everywhere. And in that region (Northern Germany), that much snow isn't normal, so they aren't that well equiped like in the mountain regions of the country, I guess.

That probably explains it. Anyone has an idea of the situation in Bavaria and around Munich? Are they coping well with the snow (if there is any) there?

I'm about to do some driving in Bavaria and Alps in a couple of weeks time. Yay, can't wait!

Another issue is Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is sparsely populated, so there aren't as much snow plows as in other areas. Plus there was gusting up to 11 bft, so even if you plowed the road, a "schneeverwehung" may pop up within half an hour.

I would say pretty normal for that time of year. Alps didn't receive much snow this winter and that is seen also at weather in neighbourhood of Alps.

Ï traveled A6 from Waidhaus to A93, A93 from A6 to A9, then A9 to Munchen, A99 and A8 to Salzburg, snowy conditions everywhere but all carriageways very well maintained, except of A6 near border where there was only 1 lane passable and two accidents occured. The rest is very good. But there is some heavy snowfall in eastern Bohemia as well, some people were trapped for several hours on national road there, conditions were comparable to those on A20...

Down to the Danube, there weren't abnormal problems. Snowy conditions, for sure, but that's normal here. We didn't receive that much snow in Southern Bavaria and we didn't have that much wind neither, therefore it wasn't that much a problem. There have been lots of snowfalls in the Southern Alps though.

Oh really? Actually snow blanket is pretty thin for this time of year, at least in higher elevations.

An interesting historical feature in central Germany is Strecke 46, an abandoned section of Autobahn from the late 1930's. Several bridges were built in the woods, but the motorway itself was never built due to world war II.

location: between Gemünden am Main and Bad Brückenau.

example:

I just love how these higways forums are becoming an almost real-time source of information for weather, disruptions and accidents

I would love to learn more about this as well as all of the other routes where construction had started but then put on hold when WWII rudely interrupted and never resumed.

I assume here that this one was fully canceled once the A7 was built on its current routing. OTOH, If I lived in the area, I'd think that that grade would make a very nice public trail/parkway.
