It's not a through road, compared to A2 and A4, filled with traffic from the Benelux, UK and France, heading for Poland.

A6 Waidhaus (CZ) - Amberg-Ost

Some pictures I took during this summer. This is the easternmost and newest section of the A6 in Germany. I drove it mainly to clinch it, as the last time I drove in the area, A6 wasn't completed east of Amberg. Traffic volumes in this area are rather low, but A6 saves a lot of time.

route:

What's going on with the B31 between Freiburg and Donaueschingen? Is that a reasonable route to get from Moulouse (FR) to Stuttgart? Or should one take the A5/A8 via Karlsruhe?

From what I have seen, B31 is a nice scenic road through the Black Forest. After the Gelbe Autobahn section around Freiburg, you get onto a road with large 2+1 sections. The route bypasses all towns and intersections with roads of any importance are grade separated. But the route is curvy and goes through hilly terrain. You'd be lucky if you reached 100 kmh for more than a few minutes.

In other words: a good Bundesstrasse, but Mulhouse - Stuttgart is definitely quicker via Karlsruhe.

I drove yesterday on B6 all the way from A14 to A39. Most of the variable speed signs were off and there was few if any traffic.

Hello, I wonder if anyone here can help me with this navigation issue of mine.

Once in a while I have to drive from CZ to Denmark. I have always followed the route planner's advice and took the A14+A2+A7 through Germany. But recently I'm growing sick and tired of traffic on A2 and A7 (and the shoulder running between Dreieck Walsrode and Soltau doesn't help the case either). So I came up with the A13+A10+A24+B404+A21+B205+A7 alternative (there's a bug which prevents the route planner to use the B205 south of Neumünster correctly, but you get the picture). I know most of the route, with the exception of B404+A21+B205 bit. It looks fine on a map (the B roads completely grade separated etc.).

So the question is: is this a viable option, or is there some "trap", which is not apparent from the map?

Thanks in advance for any helpful reply.

The B-roads are grade-separated, but neither B404 or B205 have 2+1 lanes. If traffic is heavy, passing other vehicles may be difficult. A21 is a nice autobahn, a bit curvy but traffic is light.

The alternate route goes up to Kiel, but there are a few traffic lights on B404 immediately south of Kiel.

@ChrisZwolle: Thanks for the A6 pictures!
Judging by your pics the A6´s condition is the best on the stretch shown in Part 3 and 4 while the section of Part 1 and 2 looks a little bit run down.
