For our last two trips driving down to Stuttgart (and in one case on to Prague) from the UK, we made the usual mistake of trying to get into Germany as quickly as possible (France>Belgium>Netherlands) and then hoping to make up time on the Autobahns.

On each occassion we were so disappointed by the state of the roads and the amount of roadworks that we deliberately routed through French Peage Autoroutes on the way back.

Next time we will stick with the French route. Empty roads, a reasonable speed limit, good sight lines etc.
