Difference between Bike Path and Bicycle Road in Germany (Radweg and Fahrradstraße)

Question by Guest | 23/06/2018 at 16:43

There is this round blue sign with a bike on it in Germany that marks a bike path. At the same time there is the same sign on a white square background with the subheading "Fahrradstraße" (Bicycle Street or Bicycle Road).

Now I'm wondering what the difference between these two signs is and whether it's not the same in the end. Where is the difference between a path (Weg, Fahrradweg) and a road (Straße, Fahrradstraße)? Does anyone know more?

The fundamental difference is that on the bicycle road (Fahrradstraße), the entire street or roadway is actually intended for cyclists. On the other hand, in the case of the cycle path (Radweg), in most cases, it is only on the side of the road while the roadway is intended for cars and other motor vehicles.

If a bike path is marked as such, cyclists must also use this route and must not drive on the road.

In the case of the bicycle road, it is the case that other road users are only allowed to use the roadway, if this is allowed and indicated by an additional sign.
