Erlangen is a city in the north of Nürnberg and Fürth.
West towards Würzburg, Aschaffenburg, Frankfurt
A very easy and safe way to get out of Erlangen. Take the Public Bus 287 (running from Main Train Station, for instance) to "Steudach, St.Michael" (last to the terminal station). From there you can walk over some service road crossing the fields to the Autobahn Service Station Herzogenaurach. It's a very quick walk from the bus station, maybe 700 metres straight ahead (you can see the autobahn already from the bus). Since all the cars that stop at the service station drive north straightly, you should be able to get a lift within minutes.
East towards Regensburg, Passau, Austria, Czech Republic; South towards Ingolstadt, Munich
Take bus #200 (Herzo-Express, direction "Herzogenaurach") from the main bus station in Erlangen to the stop "Herzo Base, Adi-Dassler-Straße". As soon as you got off the bus, turn around and walk the footpath to your left, crossing a small pond. At the end of the path, turn left and keep on walking straight for approximately 1km until you eventually see the A3 service station "Aurach Süd". In order to get to the other side of the fence, walk left along it until you reach the gas station.
