A2 (Germany)

From Hitchwiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The A2 is a major motorway in Germany. It connects the Ruhr Area with Berlin, via Hannover, Braunschweig and Magdeburg.

It crosses the A 1 (Hamburg-Cologne) near Dortmund, the A 7 (Hamburg-Frankfurt) in Hannover and the A 30 (Bad Oeynhausen - Amsterdam (it merges into the Dutch A 1 near Hengelo)) in Bad Oeynhausen.

You can almost be sure to travel very fast here. There are plenty of petrol stations, and all of them are highly frequented. It is also the most important connection between Poland and western Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and France. Because of the many Polish cars and trucks, it is often referred to as Warsaw Alley. So when heading to Poland, you can try to find a direct ride here.

The A2 from Bad Oeynhausen until Berlin is part of the European road E 30.

In both directions, this ramp is quite good. Best option might be to stand down by the traffic light with a sign if going westwards, or walk up and wait just some 10 meters before the bridge if you want to hitch towards Hannover. Much traffic, cars can stop (not perfectly, but it's ok). Beautiful landscape!

(average) from Braunschweig-Center take tram line to Volkmarode, then it is a 7km walk (or hitchhiking) to this ramp. There is a caravan whorehouse here, local people know this and don't want to pick up punters. Waiting times 45-60 minutes to Berlin.
