Yes, it's Portugal. Plus, he says something about "slicks" (1:37) with a clear Portuguese accent.

Hundreds of German motorists slept in their cars Tuesday night as snow chaos blocked a motorway in the south of the country. Heavy snowfall near the Bavarian town of Wuerzburg caused lorries to skid sideways on the A3 motorway, blocking the westbound carriageway to traffic travelling toward Frankfurt, police reported.

Cars ground to a halt, forming a thirty-kilometre traffic jam. Drivers had no choice but to spend the night in their vehicles, supplied by the Red Cross with biscuits and warm tea.

Traffic started flowing again Wednesday morning. No injuries were reported.

Romantic. Some 20 years ago, when I was small, I remember we had to spend a night in our car as it broke down in the middle of the night, with no bus at that time. It rained heavily and was quite romantic. Then we borrowed this car from my aunt, and it soon broke down too.

also observe an excellent save of the car of this driver at about 0:50
Why did that happen, was it slippery on the road or what, I´ve never seen anyone losing the control of the car that way on the motorway.

Interesting map!

I wonder why the A2 Hannover - Braunschweig is not on the map. It's one of the most accident-prone Autobahn of Germany.

How possible are jams at A9 near Nuernberg tommorow?

I'm going skiing and I will be going from Poland through Dresden and Muenchen towards Innsbruck. Last year I went through Regensburg (A93) Now I want to try a different route (A9), but I'm afraid of traffic jams. I'm aware that the Muenchen bypass is ALWAYS jammed, but how about Nuernberg?

What do you think?

Today's already a mess because many people going on holidays. Tomorrow might be busy too... Consider using A93 Autobahn from Hof via Regensburg to München. Barely longer.

I thought they expected a lot of snow (a class-mate told be that) in Southern Germany. That will certainly increase the amount and length of the jams.

The snow has arrived, but near Nürnberg there´s usually no snow at all.

Nice pics; some of those aren't expressways though, just roads reserved for motor vehicles. What's the speed limit on the Schulzendorferstraße "expressway" in Berlin, 50 km/h?

Incredible.

Why is Montabaur abbreviated to "Mon."? (and why the hell does it have an ICE station).

i don't know about the abbreviation.
about the station: Rheinland-Pfalz wanted to have a station, otherwise the Land wouldn't have accepted to built the railway.

There are two ICE stations in that rural area (Montabaur and Limburg). Montabaur is the station for the agglomeration around Koblenz and Neuwieder Becken - the problem is that this station is only reachable by car (the train connection from Koblenz to Montabaur is still inoperative at the moment), so it's good that it has its own motorway exit. Such rural HSL-stations are in France at LGV est européenne too (like TGV Meuse).
