Here are a couple of practical tips from personal experience:

  • If search options are offered I recommend you choose the "fastest way" ("schnellste Strecke"). If you choose "the shortest way" ("kürzeste Strecke“), you will be given a route with many slow roads with bends, narrow streets etc. You may see a lot of beautiful landscapes, but the trip can easily take twice the time as the fastest route.
  • Although the online mapping services are a great help to find the right way, you should always pay attention to the signposts on the roadside and check the way in a conventional road map before and during the journey.
