Evade the traffic

Alternative Routes
The many winter sports enthusiasts sometimes cause a high volume of traffic on the interstate connections. The state road works NRW therefore council the use of alternative routes.

For your safety
The snowploughs do the best they can, but in the interest of your safety it is best to have winter tires, or at least snow chains in the boot, as road conditions can change quite abruptly.
