Google maps has started to redirect me to my local country domain - from www.google.com/maps to www.google.at/maps.

Is there any way to prevent this without using cookies? Llike the "No Country Redirect" Url for search: google.com/ncr?

I already tried www.google.com/maps?hl=en (which works for most google sites) but maps ignores it.

    Have you tried maps.google.com/ncr?

    @pnuts I wouldn't care so much if the language was still English (.at is in German).

    @pnuts yes, for some places the maps may be shown differently. For example, check the boundaries of the top most part of India in the maps from two country specific Google Maps sites - google.com/maps/@17.4123487,78.4080455,4z & google.co.in/maps/@17.4123487,78.4080455,4z

See this example - With country redirect: https://www.google.nl/maps/@51.9750242,5.6771125,15z Without country redirect: https://www.google.com/maps/@51.9750242,5.6771125,15z
