Traffic jams at Pentecost: ADAC warns of long queues on these motorways life & knowledge

The extended Pentecost weekend arouses the desire to travel – and a car avalanche threatens on the autobahns.

The ADAC warns: “Long traffic jams on the trunk roads are threatening next weekend.” In some federal states, the public holidays also begin the holiday season: Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria start with two-week holidays, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Saarland with one-week holidays. Therefore, the risk of traffic jams in southern Germany is particularly high.

The most massive traffic disruptions are expected on Friday afternoon (June 3rd), in the south also on Saturday morning (June 4th) and Whit Monday (June 6th). The ADAC does not expect restraint as in the peak of the pandemic: “The Germans’ desire to travel is likely to be as high as before this year Corona.“

The Whitsun travel wave also covers the classic international routes Tauern, Inntal, Rheintal and Brennerautobahn as well as the Gotthard route. But you also need a lot of patience on the long-distance roads to the Croatian coasts.

Controls when entering Austria

Holiday returnees are stuck in traffic jams, especially when entering Germany at the Bavarian crossings Suben (A3), Walserberg (A8) and Kiefersfelden (A93) because of border controls, but less because of corona controls and more as a result of the refugee problem.

Most European countries have relaxed or lifted their corona entry restrictions. For this reason, there are hardly any controls.
