§ 1 

It is recommended to drivers of passenger cars as well as other motor vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of up to 3.5 t, even with favorable road, traffic, visibility and weather conditions

  1. on highways (sign 330.1),
  2. outside built-up areas on other roads with lanes for one direction, separated by median strips or other structures, and
  3. outside built-up areas on roads having at least two lanes for each direction marked by lane boundary (sign 295) or by guidelines (sign 340),

not to drive faster than 130 km/h (highway-speed guide).
This does not apply, as far as according to the StVO or according to their signs maximum speeds (character 274) exist.

As can be seen from the legal text, a recommended speed of 130 km/h is recommended. The overrun therefore does not constitute a criminal offense or an administrative offense.
