On the German A15 (E36) there are signs with Breslau (Wrocław).

Probably after Bautzen they start to sign Breslau (Wroclaw) but I'm not sure as I drove just to Bautzen.

They do sign Breslau (Wrocław) after Bautzen.

Sometimes towns from neighbouring countries are signed very early like here on A20:

Nice aerial video of the reconstruction of Dreieck Schwanebeck to Kreuz Bernim, on the northeast side of Berlin. A10 intersects with A11 here:

OTOH, maybe a Trabant will just have to do.



(Are those things even autobahn-legal?)

You can legally get on the Autobahn with a go-kart: everything that can go over 60 or 70 km/h is allowed on the Autobahn, and I think a Trabant can get to 60-70 so that would be a yes.

... if you don't mind the next truck running you over 5 seconds later because he doesn't see you.

As for the Trabant, all Trabant models are rated for at least 90 km/h top speed. Plenty enough for the Autobahn.

A go-kart? Really? Doesn't it need to be approved by TUV?

Of course, every vehicle has to be road legal (TÜV approved, insured, number plates). To be, certain standards have to be fulfilled, but theoretically, this is possible for a go-kart as well.

They basically just need to satisfy the StVZO in all details for the TÜV to really approve them. Lights and indicators at a certain minimum height (lower edge 50cm above ground) for the most part.

Gokarts in that respect fall into the category of "multi-track vehicles with under 1 meter width". Allows them e.g. to have a single main front light. Just like Quads. Or street-legal motorized wheelchairs.

110 km/h actually. At least for the most common model, the Trabant 601.

The old 1950s Trabant P50 is 90 or 95 km/h depending on model.

They had to raise the maximum speed to 100 km/h because woodpeckers fly 95 km/h.
