The federal highway 16 (abbreviation B 16 ) is a German federal highway in Bavaria . It leads from the Bavarian Forest in Eastern Bavaria to Füssen on the southwestern edge of the state.

Previous streets and names

It used to be Reichsstrasse 16. This had almost the same route as Bundesstraße 16.


Beginning as a junction from the B 85 at the Altenkreith district of Rodingen (near Cham ), the road runs in a south-westerly direction via the major cities of Regensburg and Ingolstadt along the Danube to Günzburg . From Roding to Regensburg it has been developed without intersections and was sometimes referred to as the B 16n there . From Günzburg via Krumbach , Mindelheim and Kaufbeuren to Füssen, it continues south. It joins the B 17 just south-east of Füssen . In the early 1950s, the B 16 only ran between Regensburg and Günzburg. At Bad Abbach , at a narrow point on the banks of the Danube, you pass the lion monument , erected in the 18th century in memory of the difficult expansion of the previous street there.

Cities on the B 16

B 16 (new)

The Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development is trying to develop the B 16 between Regensburg and Günzburg as a trunk road with no through-town traffic. Numerous bypasses were built for this purpose, so that as of 2015 only the Höchstädt - Donauwörth section with through town roads still exists. Currently in planning:

  • Höchstädt bypass : On December 21, 2009 the decision of the Federal Ministry of Transport about the future route was announced. Accordingly, the north / water protection area is to be implemented. The preliminary draft plan was presented on February 28, 2011. The bypass has a planned length of 7.0 km and is to be built in three lanes with changing overtaking opportunities. The start of the plan approval procedure is planned for the beginning of 2016.
  • Tapfheim and Schwenningen bypass : preparatory planning
  • Expansion between Gundelfingen and Günzburg : A three-lane expansion of the B16 is not expected before 2017.
  • Expansion in Upper Bavaria in the districts of Neuburg-Schrobenhausen and Pfaffenhofen adIlm: In the current Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan 2030, a four-lane expansion of the B16 between the district town of Neuburg on the Danube and the A9 near Manching is urgently required. The Manching motorway junction is to be converted into a powerful four-leaf clover. The accident-prone confluence of the St2335 into the B 16 east of Manching is to be rebuilt with a bridge structure free of height. In the further course between Manching and the administrative district border near Münchsmünster, further three-lane expansions at Birkenheide and Münchsmünster are planned to close gaps.
