At eye level with holidaymakers! The Traffic Tower is located right in the middle of Germany in northern Hesse on the A7, one of the most important north-south connections in Germany. On this route, there is a particularly high level of passenger traffic towards the north/coast and towards the south (Alps, Mediterranean) during holiday periods. Winter sports enthusiasts on their way to the ski regions are also very well represented on the A7. The location is also a very important East-West connection: it connects 17.9 million inhabitants of North Rhine-Westphalia with 8 million of Saxony and Thuringia.
