A wonderful german Autobahn part
The old week of the year is a great time to travel and visit the important eurpean cities. Many people and tourist's prefer to go crazy to make sure they have a chance to stay in line on the skiing slopes and pay ridicilous prices to ski in city center like atmosphere and crowding.
Best time to visit great historical places, buildings, Museums with childreens and teenagers to give them a rough idea about history and the why and else...somehow. So after Paris, London, Rome, Naples, Vienna, Milano this time Dresden and Berlin was on the plan. Now Berlin was/is a great city in many aspects but just as secret tip: Dresden is a place to go for the culturally historic interested of you out there. Best of best, believe me.
Anyway, this is not the reason why I'm starting this thread. I have another reason. When leaving yesterday by car from Berlin early morning back to Switzerland (Renault Espace, sadly so) I choose the Autobahn A9 south from Berlin to Munich until Nürnberg. This autobahn goes for about 420 km on 3 lines per side without (and I mean without) ANY traffic thru that wonderful landscape of the ex eastern Germany surroundings, mostly straight, later hilly up and down...very pittoresque. You pass along Leipzig, Jena, Bayreuth (where the famous Wagner theatre celebrates it's annual festivities) and Nürnberg. If ever any had the idea to test the potential of his/hers Ferrari, this is a great and pretty secure place to go. again 3 lines per side, often long straights, mostly no speed limits (some short 120 km phases inbetween), absolutely modern or new tarmac, sideprotection of autobahn against animals thru good,straight fences, just perfect. One could really see that the west to east investments work out well in that respect, for us ;-) Just thought that this would be of help for someone to plan some german stay or days with his F-car. Choose summertime Saturday/Sundaymorning between 6am to 10am (according to locals) then ist empty, later it's just a little more of traffic.
.....maybe a future Fled idea ?
