Salzgitter is a city in the South of Lower Saxony in Germany. The City consists of 31 districts, which are more or less away from each other and looking like villages. The biggest agglomerations are Salzgitter-Lebenstedt, Salzgitter-Bad and Salzgitter-Thiede. It is home of heavy steel industry.

Hitchhing out

To the South (A7, Göttingen)

Don't use the ramp Salzgitter Watenstedt, the traffic is going very fast here and the spot is behind a bridge where you can't be seen soon enough. Also it is difficult to stop there. Quarim tried it 4 times from there and always waited between 40 minutes and 2 hours.

to Wolfenbüttel

You can easily get a direct lift to Wolfenbüttel, if you place yourself somewhere on the Konrad-Adenauer-Straße in Salzgitter-Lebenstedt. Another option is to hitchhike from the MAN company parking place.
