damn,this time, I weren't able to take some pictures with the digicam because I forgot my charging cable in Trier.

So, here are only some bad quality pics, taken with the photo function of a small video cam.

A3, direction to Frankfurt, heading to Dreieck Dernbach


A48 Dreieck Dernbach - Koblenz - Dreieck Vulkaneifel


especially I love this part, riding down the hills of the Westerwald into the valley of the Rhine river











A1 Dreieck Vulkaneifel - Wittlich - Dreieck Moseltal








A602 Dreieck Moseltal - Trier

what do you mean woth poorly?

The missing shoulders on the 2x3 strechtes of the A48? It used to have 2x2 (what you can see on the bridges and on the exits, which are still 2x2) with shoulder, but due to rising traffic numbers (of course not comparable to those in the Netherlands ), they early widened the road to 2x3 by leaving out the shoulder and just repaint the lines. But on some places, there are some cutouts (Nothaltebucht).

And the aspahlt is always having different colors, due to different ages of renovation (damn, my english ) and it is really bad on some streches, especially on the truck line

directly in munich i didn´t make any pics, because the roads are narrower than in Austria IMO. even the autobahn
coming from A96 to >through munich< A8 there was enough traffic on a lot of lanes


coming from the country, i was afraid *lol*

pictures where shot on Saturday afternoon, not good weather

The end of A96 is the intersection in the third last picture (you only see the signs there). The last 2 photos show the "Mittlerer Ring", numbered as B2R (R for "Ring"), so it's part of the B2. In the last picture you can see a blue sign in the background. There the A995 starts, leading to intersection München-Süd with A8 and A99.

Fascinating images. I was tracing these and other nearby roadways on Google Maps aerial images and noticed that a roadway called 'Ständlerstaße', running eastward from near the north end of the A-8, looks like it is/was intended to be much more of a highway than it is now, like an incomplete autobahn. Where is/was it intended to go and what is that office campus that is near its 'ghost' end?

@mgk920: I'm not sure, but maybe it should become the start for the so-called "Grasbrunnstrecke", a new Autobahn from Munich to Rosenheim, to bypass the existing A8 with the Irschenberg, a section without shoulders which is really hard to widen.

the best German motorway i drove on:







This is a new stretch of the A94, the asphalt is not as smooth as you expect it for such a new motorway but still very good.

It doesn´t feel as good as you expect, there are bumps from time to time.

They are safer and superior in general. All new higher quality motorways are often built with concrete. The only reason not to use concrete is to save costs.

Actually it is not concrete. Autobahns in Bayern are mostly in asphalt (some are in concrete though, like A92, i think)

Because it´s asphalt explains why it aktually loks very good and very modern instead of shit concrete. But why is it so bright if it is asphalt?
