The traffic consists mainly of trucks and tourists from the Netherlands. Near big cities there's a lot of local traffic. It's a little harder to get long rides and the waiting times might be slightly higher than average.

- Bedburger Land South of Mönchengladbach. (average)
- Quite few traffic here, mostly Dutch tourists.
- Brohltal (very good)
