Rainfall totals are extreme, some locales got over 350 mm in just 4 days. There is apparently 465 centimeters of snow on the Zugspitze, which is even a lot if it was in the middle of winter, not to mention June.

Not a nice experience, anyway.


Trees in the median of highways are pretty rare, though. Can you point the exact spot on the map?
Between exit Freiburg-Süd and Freiburg-Mitte I think it was.

Talking about trees in the Median, I love this old oak in the median of the A58 in The Netherlands:

Insane! I'm driving back from Amsterdam to Munich tomorrow, hope the weather is better and the roads are not to busy. As always not sure whether to drive A3 over Nurnberg or A8 via Stuttgart. Both are equally crap...

I always prefer A3 over A8.

I drove past here yesterday and the baustelle is already in place.. 9km of 80 km/h and narrow 3 lanes.

Its the 4th major baustelle between Köln and Frankfurt at the moment. Sadly the A61 and A45 are not much of an alternative because they are also scattered with road works. Although traffic on the A61 is much lower and even in rush hour you can often drive there without major delays.

It's not as bad as it looks, the delineators are 50 meters apart usually.

It's not as useless as it might look like at first sight. It's there to ensure safer access and outlet for construction vehicles to the right. And as it can be clearly seen, the signage and traffic measures are not yet completed. However, the "Baustellenausfahrt" sign is already there

A8 and A3 is partially closed because of flood in Bavaria. Motorways are currently under water.

No. I guess these trucks were there when it was actually being flooded (it came quite quick as a dam was broken). But both A8 and A3 is closed in the sections where the road is under water.

My father is coming home today form Germany (Lampertheim), and he usually use the A3, which is now flooded. So what do you think of this detour to avoid the floods?

I used the E552 route when I returned from RO 2 weeks ago.
It's not much slower and the road is good. Even the non motorway parts.

From traffic info on Google Maps it seems driveable.
