It serves as connection between Netherlands and the German-Belgian border area. Both in-game cities closest to the autobahn (Köln and Liège) are near the autobahn's south end. Perhaps predictably, no intermediate junction exists along the way of the autobahn, but a small gas station is situated almost mid-way.
In real-life, the autobahn runs to Mannheim. Curiously, the in-game minor road connecting Köln and Mannheim stays rather close to the real-life A61, except that the minor road for some point seems to be at the east of the Rhine, while the A61 is always on its western side.
Aside from junctions in United Kingdom, the junction at the southern end of A61 (with ) is one of the few highway T-junctions in the game map that doesn't require truckers to restrict their speed at 50 km/h (31 mph) or below.
