What are the road classifications?

It is not always clear how the street classifications are separated from each other. Here you can get an overview.

In Germany, roads are divided into different classes that reflect the area of responsibility and size. In the vialytics web app, a distinction is made between the common classes of federal roads, country roads, district roads, residential roads, access roads and side roads.

Federal road Bundesstraße
Country road Landstraße
District road Kreisstraße
Residential road Anliegerstraße 2
Access road Erschließungsweg
Residential road Wohnstraße
Side road Nebenstraße
