Interesting, there are 100,000 Polish workers in the Netherlands, which is more or less stable compared to 2008, but I still have the feeling I see them way less than a year ago.

Maybe you just do not recognize those who wear more dutch look-like clothes and the others with better hairstyle.

There are no interesting road chapels in the Netherlands. In fact there are no road chapels along our roads at all

I know when I was a little kid, I was always amazed by the sign of an "Autobahnkirche", a church along the motorway! It actually sounds something Americans would have invented, but I don't think it is.

Oh, a church next to a motorway. How boring.

Take a look at this story:

And I hear there are also drive-thru confessionals.

Guys, I need an urgent advice about driving on the SS44 road in Italy. Here is a link on Google Maps: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sour...,0.727158&z=11

I'm planning to drive there on Saturday but Google indicates that the "road may be seasonally closed". Does that mean it is definitely closed in winter? If so I would have to make some adjustments.

And what about other roads in the same region? We're planning a quick trip from Munich via Innsbruck, bit of Italy to Switzerland, Liechtenstein and back to Germany. We want to avoid autobahns while not in Germany (to have some more fun while driving as well as to avoid tolls) but is it possible that some regular roads in the mountains may be closed? And is there anything else to be aware of while driving in this area in winter?


The entire intended route looks like this: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sour...1,5.817261&z=8

I promise to get back with loads of photos and possibly some videos from the trip.

Jaufenpass is only closed at night, from 6pm to 8am. So you're fine during the day.

BUT, during/after heavy snowfalls conditions may be difficult, especially if you're not used to winter driving in the mountains.

Higher altitude alpine passes are usually closed for the winter, but you can check here in detail:

The route looks fine to me. Unless there's severe weather, you shouldn't have any problems whatsoever. Your biggest concern would be the hordes of skiing tourists that flock into Austria on weekends.

And to be on the safe side, you could ask someone in Sterzing (Vipiteno) about the current conditions on Jaufenpass.


Have a nice trip! (and I'm looking forward to the photos)

Thanks, snowman159! That really helps. I'm not used (and neither is my friend with whom I'm travelling) to driving in the mountains in winter but what the hell... if we'll die at least we'll die in a beautiful place and doing a honorable job - taking photos of the road to share on SSC

Thanks again

That's the spirit!

btw, if you don't have snow chains and there's fresh snow on the road, I'd skip Jaufenpass. I think in that case they'd close the road anyway, but you never know.

After an aquaduct, ecoduct and naviduct, the Netherlands now also has an herpetoduct. Meant for reptiles like snakes.
