Is 17 the average age in NL to start studying?
In Germany the average age is 20!

So I'll likely move to Aachen (Aken, Aix-la-Chapelle) on 24th to start studying civil engineering in October.

18 is normal, but I turn 18 in a couple of months.

I heard that they want to make Aachen sort of Europe's science center, is that right?

Never heard of that.
They are part of the German Universities Excellence Initiative and in particular the mechanical engineering has international reputation.

Howdy guys, from Bled, Versoland!

I just drove 2 days 700 km, so 1400 kilometers in total. The only traffic jam was in Slovenia! Bled was jammed up

I took the Austrian A9 to Graz and then A2 to Klagenfurt, then south, the Loiblpass into Slovenia.

I was just 16. I didn't like it, all my classmates were in their 20's and at that age, that's a significant age difference.

You're in Bled/Slovenia? I didn't see this one coming! Yeah, Bled is jammed, there's also no bypass for Bohinj. Where else are you going?

Interesting. On your way back, make sure you go through Hungary, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic.

Would be fun to find out who holds the record on the number of vignettes on a windshield.

(iirc, in Austria it's technically illegal to have more than 2 or 3, because any more might impare the driver's visibility - never heard of it being enforced though)

I think in Austria it's illegal to have more than 2 Austrian vignettes.

It's not illegal to have more than 2 vignettes, it's only recommended to have not more than 2 vignettes:

A van driver wanted to shortcut the road through a car wash, but the van got struck while demolishing the car washing appliance
The driver couldn't even get out of the van until firemen removed the damaged appliance
