Maybe Tempelhof used to be a good place to hitch hike in the past but now it seems impossible to catch a ride there - there is simply no space for a car to stop (or we failed to find a spot which I doubt because we searched the whole neighbourhood). If you still want to test it yourself here is how to get there: The [[airport]] is easy to reach with S- Bahn and U-Bahn. Once there simply follow the sign towards Dresden (A100). There are two red lights, for people coming from north and south, so they have time to see you. You should ask for A113 or A13, or simply if they are going in the way to Ikea, and get dropped on the petrol station before the big mall (before Waltersdorf, check map also). Bus #263 from S-Bahn station Grünau also goes to/near this petrol station. '''Please read the discussion page'''!

If you go to Prague, make sure that drivers who stop in Dresden bring you to the service area "Dresdner Tor Süd". "Dresdner Tor Nord" is also possible, but then you have to walk approx. 1,5 kilometers through a field to go to the other side.

(Update June 2015: A busy Friday afternoon, got a lift after 15 minutes all the way to Dresden so was very happy with this spot. It is possible to walk along the row of cars in the left-turning lane during a red light, but there isn't much space between these cars and the lane of traffic coming beside it in the opposite direction, so try to get back to the small pedestrian area at the traffic light before it changes. - grae)
At a busy traveling time, e.g. Friday afternoon, the left turn to enter the Autobahn A100 from B96 Tempelhofer Damm near S-Bahnhof Tempelhof under the S-Bahn bridge (googlemaps: 52. 469536,13.385558) is highly recommended. You will stand with a Dresden or A13 sign on the pedestrian space where you can speak with some of the left- bound drivers directly. They could even stop before the Autobahn begins, but it 's better to get in immediately. Wait for DD number plates, CB (Cottbus) come less often, but might also be useful. Not a thing to do in the night. One of ten DD cars would probably take you. Waiting time: one hour, but then you have a functioning ride.)
From the 96a road (not that much in use after opening the A113)
