Shortly before Christmas, according to ADAC, it should be full on Bayern's highways on several days. Especially on Thursday and Friday, the streets would probably be on their capacity limits in the afternoon, the association said in Munich on Monday. While it should become quieter again on Christmas Eve and the first Christmas holiday, many traffic jams threatened due to the return traffic on December 26.

According to the ADAC forecast at the beginning of the Christmas holidays, it becomes full-among others-on the A3 Frankfurt-Nuremberg-Passau, the A8 Stuttgart-München-Salzburg or the A9 Munich-Nuremberg-Berlin. In the direction of the Alps, the association expects fewer drivers this year than in previous years. The reason: skiing holidays have become significantly more expensive, and trips abroad have become more expensive. The association therefore expects less traffic to popular winter sports regions than usual. Nevertheless, the automobile club awaits full motorways in the direction of the ski areas. These are, for example, the A93 Inntaldreeck-Kufstein and the A95 to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In Austria, Switzerland and Italy, the ADAC also warns of long waiting times on the access roads to the alpine ski areas.
