Tabanus sudeticus has no stripes on the eyes and is much bigger. Could be Tabanus bromius, but wait for the experts.
Best regards,

Three bands = Hybomitra (unless …), and the eye is hairy.

Sudeticus is twice as big.

Thank you Theo and Juergen,
then I would go for Hybomitra bimaculata (female)? with a further picture below.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
