That's the A67, you only get to the A6 in Viernheim on that route. The A6 curves around Mannheim and goes to Saarbrücken via K-Town. The Mannheim/Schwetzingen (North) exit on the A6 is for the B535 btw, not A656. That's the one before it.

For some reason lately the A67 is pretty accident-prone, in particular in the North out west of Darmstadt. Seems like an accident blocking the whole thing virtually every other day...

And the route is longer than via the A5. Considerably. Yeah, you're mostly able to stay above 160 on the A67, but you're usually outside rush hour able to pull 130-140 on the A5, making it pretty much the same travel time.

If you actually want to do 100-110 only then the A5 is the less stressful route. Just avoid using it between 7 am and 9 am and between 3 pm and 8 pm...

Germany totally exaggerates with these speed limits through tunnels. A lot of them you are required to drop down from a 1000 km/h to 80 km/h, even though it's wide and straight. In Austria and Switzerland it's usually 100. There is one in Austria on the A12 near Telfs where you are allowed 130.

Edit: I'm sorry, I appear to be on the wrong thread. I was meant to be in Slovenia.

I assume it was taken after the reconstruction of this interchange, so probably in 2006 or 2007.

left-over video from April 2011: the B200 through the city of Flensburg. A nice 120 km/h expressway. This video includes the border crossing with Denmark.

Cool. I'm glad we find ourselves on the same level again after a brief period of "misunderstanding".

1000 km/h if you wanted to. What I meant to say was that you drop from no speed limits to a sudden 80 because of a lousy tunnel.

Aren't they presigned? I mean, isn't there a 130, then 100, then 80?

Yes they are. However, this sudden speed drop is dangerous, unjustified and frankly stupid (80 km/h in brand new tunnels with 3 lanes + emergency makes no sense).

Any plans to increase the speed limit in tunnels. 80 km/h is pretty ******* stupid too.

What is annoying in german autobahns is the load of works.
In the A1 between Bremen and Hambourg, we almost cannot go faster than 100km/h.

I always get the impression that Germans are scared to death of tunnels. Just an impression, though.

A friend of mine noticed the weird spelling of Dreieck München-Südwest. It's apparently written as München-Süd-West on all signs. Is this an error? It's not proper German, see Südwest on Wikipedia.

It's the same down here in Baden-Württemberg. I wonder if it's a special period, in other countries you don't see nearly as many of them.
Between the roadworks and the cars that overtake you at 200 km/h you never have time to get bored on the Autobahn!

The spelling is wrong as such just a bit daft. But what is clearly wrong is to call this junction München-Südwest in the first place. But who am I telling this.
