It seems like cats-eyes or some sort of raised plastic pavement markings were used on the right carriageway. I've never seen those used on Autobahns.

Nah, I think those are leftovers from earlier temporary markings when there were roadworks.

My most recent visit to Germany

A99 and A8 München - Salzburg

From about 0:55 you can see a train passing on a bridge above the autobahn


More videos and a photo report coming soon.

A8 a little further away from munich. Note, there ar no hard shoulders in some stretches. The average speed (unless limited) is still perhaps higher than on any other motorway

Were you going from Munich to Salzburg or vice versa?
Once I was with my family to Paris and at the interchange A8 and A99 I saw quite a lot of old signs.

I was driving in some of those videos Yes, we were going from Munchen to Salzburg. We were surprised to see so lots of traffic on our way back! The autobahn was like a huge traffic jam, average speed was probably about 50 km/h (that was last Sunday night, about 6 PM CET).

I was very impressed with "dynamic" signs on that autobahn. They looked like ordinary blue/white signs but they could turn and display different information when traffic intensity was high (autobahn would then switch from three lanes to four). I've never seen such signs before, they seemed like a very efficient way of controlling traffic.

It's strange on a Sunday night. Normally, on a sunday evening during winter, you'd expect traffic jams in direction of Munich because all the skiers go back home.

Here is the video from last Sunday's evening on the A94 driving towards Munich. Not sure what exact location that is but perhaps about 60 or so km from Munich. It actually got worse at some stretches. Near Munich, however, all the traffic somehow vanished and we were cruising the streets all around the city without any constraints.

The originals of the dynamic signs are located around Frankfurt (and they look much better organized than those copies around Munich ). Some can be found in this gallery. They not only react on different number of useable lanes, they also switch the destinations if necessary.

Btw, nice music What's the name of the track in the first vid you posted?

Thanks, Rohne. Music in the first one is 'General Midi - On the Run'. Can be found here.
