So all people that live in cities, have these stickers on their car?
Thanks.
Unfortunately I don't know how to get such a sticker, I don't suppose fuel stations are prepared to examine the car's classification.
Usually not whole towns but only city centers belong to environmental zones. A zone is always marked by such a sign (see below). Red/Yellow/Green discs at the lower part sign if drive in is allowed for cars have a sticker of the respective color.

All local municipal vehicle registries, all TÜV and Dekra service stations, most gas stations in cities with environmental zones, most chain car service stations (e.g. ATU), most car dealers or ordering them from various commercial providers on the internet.

The municipal vehicle registries sell them for 5 Euro, at the other places it's often 7-10 Euro.

Environmental zones are marked with signs like this:

with the bottom sign showing which colors may enter this zone (in this case green and yellow).

Yes. All in those cities with environmental zones. Not all cities have environmental zones.

Here is a website with all the information about LEZ's:

Here's the specific site for Germany with a map of the cities with LEZ's:

A nice one to take when travelling from Switzerland to Hungary:
A96, Lindau - Munich
Good overall quality, few speed-limited parts and few Baustellen.

1.


2.


Unfortunately, when arriving at Munich to continue eastbound towards Salzburg, the Mittlerer Ring (connector between A96 and A8, an urban multilane motor traffic road) is likely to be jammed ...

Does Germany have an official traffic information website like www.trafficengland.com?

Wouldn't know of any official.

Several of the state-owned tv/radio broadcast networks have comparable map systems on their websites, e.g. here from SWR.

That's odd, I somehow expected the autobahn agency to have an official page. Do anyone know how Active Traffic Management is working on the Autobahn?

I suppose maintenance of Autobahn is done by state governments. But it is just an informed guess, not sure about that.

Maintenance is done by the federal government.

The federal transport ministry has an official site for current construction sites on the Autobahn network that details what's being done where for how long and what speed limits and other restrictions apply (e.g. lane width, exact timing of full blocking etc).

Active traffic management is done regionally, with information often collated at state level by transport ministries and state police.

Two examples for state agencies:
Straßenverkehrszentrale Baden-Württemberg (road traffic center - no map system but a good number of webcams!)
Bayerninfo / Verkehr (Bavaria - map system)

While driving on the A7 near Hildesheim yesterday, I noticed the conrete surface of the road was absolutely horrible. Does anyone knows if there are plans to upgrade this road?

Nice videos - the Autobahnen in central Germany are rather scenic!

A video of the A71 through the Thüringer Wald, or Thuringia Forest. The video includes the longest road tunnel in Germany, the Rennsteigtunnel near Suhl.

Recently was Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony, Thuringia and Hesse. It is now time for Rhineland-Palatinate.







I'll be back (later).

Since they started the construction on Mittlerer Ring, I went always from Munich to Kreuz Deggendorf on A92 and then on A3 to Passau when travelling from Switzerland to Hungary. This route is 28km longer, but you have almost any speedlimits and on A92 traffic is very low. For this reason it is faster than Mittlerer Ring and A8. See the map.
