double-vowels are followed by "ß". Scheiße is the correct spelling


Scheiße!

Guys, what I wanted to say is that you see 'Straßburg' in Germany, not 'Strasbourg'.

Luckily all of this will be changed to "Strasbourg" soon, right?

I wanted to write Straßburg, I just didn't have ß on my keyboard and when I studied German in high school a few years ago I learnt that ß was interchangeable with 'ss'. And then I was too lazy to go to autobahn-bilder.de to prove my point.

Probably there are too many destinations to be signed in France, so they just added "Frankreich". I've once seen a sign in the Netherlands that said "België", but it's indeed rare.

There were, but are not now, only in some far future, AFAIK. There is brand new Marienberg bypass, 4-lane road near Zschopau and in combination with Südring to connect it with A72 and eastern bypass of Chemnitz to A4 it might quite enough for a long time...

BTW on czech side, the municipality of Hora Sv.Šebestiána decided for a bypass of the village (instead of through-road which was designed so far), planned to be built in next decade. The whole R7 Praha - Chomutov might be completed in 2015.

It's the city. If it was the country, it would be in German, so without 'o'.

In the german-speaking part of Belgium, it's mostly signed as "Luxemb(o)urg" - that looks sometimes weird with the brackets

B258 Aachen-Roetgen



B258 Aachen-Roetgen



another street somewhere between Aachen and Gerolstein in the early evening
