(From Wiki):Bundesautobahn 3 (Federal Motorway 3) is an autobahn in Germany that links the German border with the Netherlands near Wesel in the northwest to then go to the A2/A516 in Oberhausen an ultimately to the south at the Austrian border near Passau, where it continues in Austria as the A8.Major cities along its total length of 778 km (483 mi) include Oberhausen, Duisburg, Düsseldorf, Leverkusen, Cologne, Wiesbaden, Frankfurt, Würzburg, Nuremberg and Regensburg. The A3 is a major connection between the Rhine-Ruhr area and southern Germany, resulting in heavy traffic. Consequently, large parts have three lanes (plus a hard shoulder) in each direction, including a 300 km (187.5 mi) section between Oberhausen and Aschaffenburg.Date recorded: September, 2020Weather: ☀️ 26C | 79FVideo Format: 4K 60FPSAudio Format: MP3 320 kbps Binaural Audio ? - Put on headphones for the best and immersive experience-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lets connect or support and receive updates of the travel places to be viewed in upcoming videos:Support me on【Paypal】https://www.paypal.me/WanderlustTVSupport me on【Patreon】https://www.patreon.com/Wander....lustTravelVideosFoll me on 【Instagram】https://www.instagram.com/wand....erlusttravelvideos/F me on 【Facebook】https://www.facebook.com/Wande....rlustTravelVideos/#W #Autobahn #AutobahnGermany---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------https://www.tubebuddy.com/WTVAffiliatePromotion
