The German city claims the title of traffic jam capital in Germany for the second year in a row. A data provider study shows that motorists in Munich spent the most amount of time in traffic jams in 2017 - 51 hours (4 hours longer than in 2016). This can mainly be attributed to the high number of construction sites it has at important intersections.

Hamburg and Berlin meanwhile recorded the most significant increase, with both cities now ranking in second and third place. In Hamburg and Berlin, drivers now spend about 44 hours per year in traffic jams. Motorists across Germany pend an average of 30 hours a year in traffic jams.
