The busiest border crossing in Europe is Walserberg, between Germany and Austria, near Salzburg. 75.000 vehicles cross it every day. The second busiest would be Hazeldonk between the Netherlands and Belgium. 60.000 vehicles cross it every day.

Of course there may be busier rail crossings, I have no idea about the Channel Tunnel, various air routes, or the Øresund Rail connection.

There was a discrepancy of traffic data at the Walserberg border crossing. The Austrian side indicated 75.000 vehicles per day, the German side 45.500 vehicles per day. The latter seems more plausible.

Quite often there are border crossing traffic jams at Walserberg, which could be for a number of reasons. Same with the Kufstein border, as they are doing bridge repairs over the river Inn, which is the actual border on that motorway, resulting in Germany style roadworks on Austrian soil. I'll be crossing that border this afternoon, I'll see if I can take some pictures...

Can we then assume that Hazeldonk is in fact the busiest border crossing? What about A12, A3 at Arnhem - Oberhausen?

a very good question.

Does anyone have data about it, even with customs or without them?

I guess Como-Chiasso border between Italy and Switzerland is pretty busy, too.

54.000 vehicles per day.

I think it's quite safe to say that Hazeldonk - Meer (NL - B) is the busiest in Europe with 65.000 vehicles per day. Other border crossings in the Netherlands and Belgium carry less traffic than that.

There are some border crossings with more seasonal variations, such as Ventimiglia (I - F) and La Jonquera (E - F). There may be peak days with higher volumes.

Passed two (for me new) borders yesterday. Austria > Slovenia, Slovenia - Croatia. Both were quite unpleasant, which had probably something to do with the busy saturday but still. The two lane Karawankentunnel is a hell and the regional road between Slovenia and Croatia is as well. Also, I thought Croatia opened its borders about three weeks ago, why were there still customs agents holding up traffic at the border, asking for passports? Annoying and unnecessary.

Because the Dutch media doesn't know anything about the European Union, despite daily reports about EU issues. Croatia joined the EU. It did not enter the Schengen agreement. Hence border crossings are business as usual.

I see. They're off about many things lately. However, I asked the landlord here in Pula today what's up with the border crossing and he said it's always bad. Now Croatia is part of the EU there is 1km less traffic jammed up before the border. He said that the border did open early July. The customs agents didn't really check the passports, just holding them out of the window while driving through was enough apparently.
