    Just curious.
    My wife and I have on several occasions driven through Germany from Puttgarten to Cannes, France via Switzerland.
    When the roads have been clear enough we have driven quite fast, +200 km/h, and it's only recently that I've understood that not all parts of the German Autobahn haven't got speedlimits.
    So my German friends, my question to your is, what parts of the German autobahn haven't got speedlimits?

    well what do you think? ;) the ones with the sign: SpeedLimit ofcourse ;) LOL...

    when there is a sign you have to keep that speed...that can be 130 - 100 - 80 or whatever. On all other highway parts the recommanded speed is 130 but you are allowed to go as fast as you like...if you don't drive dangerous!!

    :D have fun! :)

    The unlimited autobahns are mostly in the south of Germany.
    I often drive the stretch from Singen to Stuttgart which is unlimited a large part of the way. Wolfgang or one of the other Germans here should be able to give you a more exact answer.

    Cheers

    That's the reason why I'm asking.
    On most parts of the roads we've used the signs say 130, but especially on the evenings and at night, most cars go *alot* faster than that.
    And so did we...

    We usually use the A7 to Frankfurt and then the A5 to Basel.
    We've been driving as if there were no speedlimits.
