When you use the opportunity to stop at the BER airport you can take a tour through Berlin on following Autobahns:

A10--->A113--->A100--->A115--->A10 (see my map on previous page).

or

A10--->A113--->A100--->A111--->A10


It´s much more interesting than the boring A10 Berliner Ring.

For a road maniac, an more or less original stretch of a Reichsautobahn would be a must-see. A8 from Salzburg to Rosenheim or from Ulm to Kirchheim/Teck pop into my mind, obviously, but that's in the far south. I don't know if you would be able to find similar stretches in the East nowadays.
Another great sight would be e.g. Strecke 46, a stretch parallel to A7 between Fulda and Würzburg which was never finished. (There are a few more leftovers in Germany and the Czech Republic)

The one in CZ had number A88 and we have plenty of interesting materials about it, I can recommend e.g. this book: http://www.rsd.cz/doc/Silnicni-a-dal...i-dalnice-2dil - it's in czech but with many photos and translatable text (you can copy it form the book). Though the remnants of the construction lie on the czech teritorry, it still represents a Geman Autobahn, so we're even in the right thread.

About the Strecke 46, it also has a nice book that's worth to read. I am a proud owner of one copy signed by the author

What's the speed limit there? I see a 100 km/h sign on the German side, but I expect some even more ridiculous speed reduction (80 km/h and less) on the dutch side.

I don't get it, why they always have to reduce speed limits on border crossings that much all the time, even though the street layout does not change. To remind you how great Schengen is?

A74 Venlo-9 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr




Press release in German:

Quote:
Presseinformation vom 04.04.2012
A61/A74: deutsch-niederländisches Autobahnnetz bei Venlo verknüpft

Pünktlich zur "Floriade" in den Niederlanden ist auch der Lückenschluss des deutsch-niederländischen Autobahnnetzes bei Venlo offiziell besiegelt worden.


[Grafik: Lageplan] Nettetal (straßen.nrw).

Bundesverkehrsminister Dr. Peter Ramsauer hat heute (4.4.) zusammen mit der niederländischen Ministerin Melanie Schultz von Haegen und NRW-Verkehrsminister Harry K. Voigtsberger die "Südumgehung Venlo" im Verlauf der Autobahnen A61 auf deutscher und A74 auf niederländischer Seite dem Autofahrer übergeben, auch wenn der Verkehr erst am Donnerstagmorgen (5.4.) ab fünf Uhr tatsächlich über die neue Strecke fließen wird. 32 Millionen Euro Baumittel sind in die drei Kilometer lange neue Autobahn geflossen.

120 km/h on the Dutch side (only on the A74 though)

Deadeye Reloaded, thanks, I'll think about that.

thun - too sad that all these roads are in the Southern Germany and it's too far from my route.

This is B469, a road that, between the A3 motorway and Miltenberg, is mostly a 2x2 motor traffic way ("yellow Autobahn").
With comparably low traffic and gentle curves, it has no overall speed limit, despite missing hard shoulders. 160-180 km/h can be driven very comfortably, and it's not rare being passed by cars going at well over 200 km/h. And it works.

2012 photos, driving southbound (away from A3 motorway).

This map has a fail.

It doesn't show the proper interconnection with A73 (NL) and gives the impression this new highway ends in the city network.

My first drive to Germany was a disappointment

Bumpy, patched run down roads packed with traffic, roadwork, closed roads, motorways with 4km congestions, speeding highbeam flashing Porsches and Audis cutting me of at exits.

I remembered that I have some pics from the German A8 Autobahn between the Austrian border and A93 interchange:

Just after the border crossing, the no speed limit sign:



No hard shoulders:









Near lake Chiemsee there were 3 lanes per direction, but surprisingly here was imposed a speed limit (120 km/h if I remember well):



Car stopped on the non-existent hard shoulder:





A8 / A93 interchange:

Are there any plans to enlarge and upgrade A8 between Rosenheim and the Austrian border?

There were plans if Munchen would have won the hosting of the winter Olympics (which was eventally given to a South Korean city that name is similar with Pyongyang).

Very good pictures Bogdy!
I (actually I was driving, so my girlfriend) made some pictures on this route http://g.co/maps/k2dzh
I will try to find time and post them.
On the part from Ingolstadt until Kreuz Memmingen the rain was so heavy that no decent pictures could have been made, also a dense fog until Munich.
