At Pentecost, another wave of travelers will make their way through Germany. The ADAC explains in advance where to expect traffic jams on the motorways.
The ADAC traffic jam forecast for Pentecost
On the Pentecost weekend, there should be high activity on the German autobahns. The ADAC warns that there is a risk of traffic jams in many places. The fact that Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria are starting two-week holidays also contributes to this. A week’s holiday begins in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Saarland.
It is therefore not surprising that the ADAC sees a high risk of traffic jams, especially in the south. In principle, however, it can be seen that motorways throughout Germany can get tight.
Here the ADAC sees a high risk of traffic jams at Pentecost
- Greater Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart, Cologne, Frankfurt, Munich areas
- Highways to the North and Baltic Seas
- A1 / A3 / A4 Cologne Ring
- A1 Cologne – Dortmund – Bremen – Lübeck
- A2 Dortmund – Hannover – Berlin

- A4 Kirchheimer Dreieck – Erfurt – Dresden
- A5 Hattenbacher Dreieck – Frankfurt – Karlsruhe – Basel
- A6 Kaiserslautern – Mannheim – Heilbronn – Nürnberg

Motorists can currently look forward to at least some relief for the A95/B2 in Bavaria. The ADAC reports that the opening of the Oberau tunnel should reduce traffic jams from the end of the A95 motorway to Oberau in the future. On weekends with nice weather, traffic jams stretched for kilometers.
The number of motorway construction sites in Germany is currently 976 and thus remains at a very high level. In addition, maintenance work is currently being carried out in various tunnel tubes: These are then often closed several times at night. However, the night closures usually take place during the week.
Autobahn closures in Germany
According to the ADAC, the following motorway closures are currently active or announced:
- A36 Vienenburg in the direction of Autobahnkreuz Bernburg between the Hoym junction and the Aschersleben-Zentrum junction until July 25th
- A40 Venlo in the direction of Duisburg between the Duisburg-Rheinhausen junction and the Neuenkamp Rhine bridge from Friday, June 3, 10 p.m. to Tuesday, June 7, 5 a.m
- A45 Gießen towards Hagen between Lüdenscheid and Lüdenscheid-Nord until further notice
- until further notice
- A66 Wiesbaden – Frankfurt in both directions between Wiesbaden-Biebrich and Wiesbaden-Mainzer Straße until October 8th
The ADAC traffic jam forecast for abroad
At Pentecost, the ADAC expects a lot of traffic on the classic travel routes. These include the Tauern, Inntal, Rheintal and Brenner autobahns as well as the Gotthard route. The same applies towards the Croatian coasts.
Waiting times at the German external borders, both when leaving for the respective neighboring country and when entering Germany, cannot be ruled out. Due to the relaxation of the entry regulations in many countries, things are also moving much faster at the borders. More and more countries are doing without controls.
