On these signs, is the distance shown for "Autobahn 44* Dortmund" (*If 44 is the number - can't quite make it out) the distance to Dortmund or to the junction with 44?

Should be the distance to the city. If they were to sign the distance to the intersection they would have put the name of the intersection and the symbol:

Very good pictures, you must clean the windshield a lot, right? Sometimes you have to clean it every 40 minutes to take good pictures.

Thanks, you are right about cleaning the windshields. After some driving the whole front of the car, including the windshield has become one big mass grave for bugs. So, at every stop I clean the windows, not only for taking pictures but especially for a clear view.

Used to be. There are longer beltways nowadays. For instance, the G1501 ring road of Shanghai is 209 kilometers long.

And it isn't even the longest beltway in Europe. The M25 in London (Part E13, E15 and E30) is some 200 kilometers long.

M25 - 117 mi - 188 km
A10 - 122 mi - 196 km

The M25 is completed by the 10 kilometer long A282 at the Dartford Crossing, which is basically a motorway-like road and functions as one, making the London Orbital 198 kilometers long.

So British M25+A282 (That is E15) > German A10

M25 was a mental leap, because I see M25 (111 mi) + A282 (6 mi) = 117 mi

Only to put the Germans below first place...
