If you are traveling in Switzerland, you have to prepare for longer waiting times on the Gotthard route, the access roads to the ski areas of Graubünden, the Bernese Oberland, the Valais and Central Switzerland as well as at the car loading stations.

On the return trip to Germany, there may be waiting times at the borders from Austria to Germany on the main travel days. How long you have to wait at the border from Austria to Germany at the transitions Walserberg (Salzburg - Bad Reichenhall), Kiefersfelden (Kufstein Süd - Kiefersfelden) and Suben (Location I. Innkreis - Pocking) can be seen online

at the Austrian Infrastructure company ASFINAG.
