Fun, Fun, Fun on the Autobahn

Millions of Germans this weekend closed off a 40-mile stretch of autobahn for a banquet and party.

"As many as three million people turned up for a giant banquet at picnic tables along 60km (40 miles) of motorway between Duisburg and Dortmund.

A radio traffic report quipped that the A40/B1 had been closed due to 'the longest table in the world."

This section is one of the busiest parts of the German motorway. The party was intended to celebrate the history of the Ruhr region, Germany's former industrial center.
