Yes, it's very scenic indeed, reminds me of a parkway. So you drove L74 southbound, which road did you take afterwards?

As far as I remember 74 ends up intersecting with 229 in a beautiful valley. Not far from there you can enter the Müngstener Brückenpark with a massive Mungsten Bridge, the highest steel railroad bridge in Germany.

I kinda liked that area.

Kreuz Essen-Nord

The Interchange "Kreuz" Essen-Nord was supposed to be a full Autobahn-to-Autobahn interchange, since the A52 was supposed to run north from Kreuz (now Dreieck) Essen-Ost to Gladbeck, hence interchanging the A42 at Kreuz Essen-Nord. Well, the interchange was build, but it's still waiting for the A52 to arrive. It's a needed Autobahn, the B224 can be backed up pretty bad, and there are no alternatives nearby. (both A3 and A43 are 10 - 15 km away).

Oh yes, A4 is a mess at the moment. And I really don't like this narrow, steepy stretch in woods near Erfurt. And A4 is quite congested, where A38 has a fairly moderate traffic

I put all the Autobahns I clinched into an Excel file, and the total is 7.407 out of 12.550 kilometers, which means I have clinched 59,02% of all German Autobahnen. So still a lot to go

Quite a wind-catcher. I wonder if it has ever toppled over because of that

A49 Kassel - Neuental

Click on the title for the full set

The A49 is a relatively unimportant Autobahn, going from Kassel to the town of Neuental. It is obvious that it should've ran to Marburg or Gießen, since the milemarkers also confirm this. The road becomes very quiet south of Baunatal and Fritzlar.

route:

Video: A81 Stuttgart

This video takes us across the Autobahn A81 in southern Germany, from Ilsfeld to Sindelfingen-Ost, through the Stuttgart metropolitan area. It also features a tunnel, and the A81 has 6 to 8 lanes, including a concurrency with A8.
