Coming weekend – the start of the Easter holidays brings an increased risk of traffic jams


The Easter holidays will start again from next weekend throughout Austria and ten German states. The ÖAMTC expects huge traffic jams and heavy traffic on the highways again this year.

With the onset of the holidays, there should already be lively traffic on Saturday. The end of the ski season will also lead to delays, especially in Tyrol, the ÖAMTC warned on Thursday. A huge wave of travel is expected, especially on the most important travel days, such as Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.

Delays also on Easter Monday
Since Good Friday is a public holiday in Germany, many motorists from Germany start their Easter holidays in the afternoon and evening hours of Maundy Thursday and also early on Good Friday. On the return journey, the longest delays occur on Easter Monday.

The ÖAMTC expects a lot of convoy traffic towards Southeastern and Eastern Europe from the Suben border crossing via the Innkreis- (A8), West- (A1), Außenring- (A21) and Ostautobahn (A4) to the Nickelsdorf border crossing. Loss of time is also to be expected at the Spielfeld (A9) and Karawankentunnel (A11) border crossings in Styria and Carinthia.

Ski holidaymakers in Tyrol
Ski vacationers will occasionally cause disabilities, especially in Tyrol. Traffic jams can form on Zillertal Straße (B169) before the Brettfall tunnel, on Eibergstraße (173) and on Reschen Straße (B180) near Ried im Oberinntal. In Salzburg and Styria, parts of Ennstal Straße (B320) can lose time.

In good weather, lake areas, from Lake Constance to the Carinthian lakes, from the Salzkammergut to Lake Neusiedl, are also attractive destinations. Many will probably drive to the Wachau from Vienna.
