Germans party in oneof the country's busiest stretches of "Autobahn".

This is one of the craziest venue i ever heard for the Party Goers. Germans had organised an enormous party on one of the country's busiest stretches of "Autobahn".

At least 1m people are expected to drop in on a banquet being held on Sunday on a 60km stretch of motorway.

Only pedestrians and cyclists are now allowed on this part of the A40/B1.

The event is part of cultural celebrations in the western Ruhr area, Germany's former industrial heartland.

The party organisers said they had given away 20,000 tables for "the longest banquet in the world" in the middle of the motorway between the cities of Dortmund and Duisburg.

People are set to eat, drink, dance and perform plays along the traffic artery until Sunday evening.

Organisers also expected newly-weds and their guests to sit down at the world's longest wedding banquet.

One resident living next to the A40 in Essen, Waltraud Weber, told German public broadcaster WDR that she was pleased to have had an unusually quiet night. "Now we will go and party with our children", Ms Weber said.

At midday German media reported that the A40 temporarily had to be closed to cyclists due to traffic jams and overcrowding.

The party, called Still Life, is part of the region's celebrations as Cultural Capital of Europe 2010.
