German summer holidays may cause Gotthard Tunnel tailbacks

National News // By Tay Kinnear // July 26, 2019

Traffic warnings are in place for the Gotthard Tunnel this weekend as two large German Länder start their summer holidays today.

Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria will be on their summer break from Monday, so traffic heading south is expected to be very busy from tomorrow.

The advice is the same – head off early to beat the rush or find an alternative route – such as the San Bernadino Tunnel if coming from Zurich and eastern Switzerland – or maybe the Simplon Pass or Lötschberg Tunnel.

Either way, the roads will be busy this weekend.
