As in the previous year, drivers in Germany spent an average of 40 hours in traffic jams in 2022.

That is significantly less than in 2019. Munich is again the leader.

Munich remains the congestion capital in Germany.

According to the annual analysis by the traffic data provider Inrix, drivers in the Bavarian capital had to endure an average loss of time of 74 hours in 2022.

Compared to the previous year, this corresponds to a decrease of 5 hours, compared to 2019 the minus is 15 percent.

This makes Munich an exception among the 10 most congested German cities.

On the contrary, in many places the volume of traffic jams has increased significantly.

In Berlin, as in 2021 in second place, drivers had to put up with 71 hours of downtime.

A year earlier it was 65 hours.

With a loss of 74 hours, Munich will once again be Germany's traffic jam capital in 2022.

A year earlier it was 37 hours.

Even if the city ranking indicates a strong increase in traffic jam times, the problem has eased on average across Germany.

On average, drivers in Germany spent 40 hours in traffic jams, which corresponds to the level of 2021.

In the pre-corona year 2019 it was 46 hours.
