The road marking you will cross is:

Bicycle passage or bicycle crossing (M16)
The sign indicates a bicycle passage or a bicycle crossing where there is a ‘Bicycle crossing’ sign (B8). If the road marking indicates a bicycle crossing, it shall be combined with the ‘Give way line’ sign (M14).

It is therefore either a bicycle passage or a bicycle crossing. Because these are missing…

Bicycle crossing (B8)

Give way line (M14)

…it can be concluded that this is a bicycle passage, not a bicycle crossing.

A driver who is approaching an uncontrolled bicycle passage shall adapt their speed in order to avoid any risk to cyclists or moped drivers who are using the bicycle passage.” (Road Traffic Ordinance)

There is a road sign indicating a bicycle path on the right and the left. Does this not mean that it is a bicycle path that crosses the road?
– No. A bicycle path that crosses a road never has the M16 road marking (sometimes referred to as ‘sugar cubes’). You can therefore immediately discount the idea that this is a bicycle path that is crossing the road. The bicycle path ends when it reaches the road, and begins again on the other side.

I do not have an obligation to give way, but am I still required to reduce my speed?
– Yes. At a bicycle passage, cyclists must wait for traffic to pass. But if a cyclist is already on the bicycle passage when you approach in your car, you are not permitted to drive into the cyclist. You must therefore reduce your speed to avoid causing a dangerous situation.
