Direction Osnabrück, Netherlands (Amsterdam)
If you want to go towards Osnabrück or further towards Amsterdam along the A30, you have to get out at this service station if drivers are not going your way anyway. Since most traffic is not going towards the A30, you can look forward for some 30-40 minutes waiting time until somebody might go your direction. Try to get rides towards Bad Oeynhausen, there you can find service stations along the city-motorway where you even can find Dutch cars. Next service station will be Grönegau West, just before Melle and Osnabrück.
