German motorways stau

Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone could help me with this:

We drive frequently to Germany (in-laws lives 30km from the German/Danish border) and we just came back from a driving trip to DUS area.

On our way down (June 2) we were basically stuck from Bremen on until we south of Osnabruck. On the way back (2 days ago) we were stuck again on A2 because there is a temporary closure of the motorway.

We tried to check online for all the Bausteller etc. but we can't get detail information about it. As we were about to drive the sites claimed that there is nothing on A1 and A2 but there are road work site and the temporary closure of A2.

Also we are thinking doing a driving trip down again sometimes in July and we are so worried about holiday traffic - stau.

Is it always like that on A1? Or which motorways are less packed? Is that a better website telling people about the road works/closures? When is the better time to avoid holiday traffic?

We were thinking about driving off hours - it worked but we can't always do that with 3 small kids - they are not so small that they can just sleep in the car.

Thanks in advance!
