Hitchhiking out

West (A 2, Hannover, Dortmund) and South A 9, Leipzig, München, Frankfurt am Main)

From the railway station go along the street Brauhausberg for 400 m, at the end of the parking lane is the spot, which leads to Michendorf, where the service stations Michendorf Nord and Michendorf Süd are situated Verygood.png (very good). If you arrive with the suburban train, you can take the buses 608, 643 or N43 until stop Michendorf, Abzweig Wildenbruch, you follow the old main street for 50 meters and then go right into Feldstraße, after 600 m you see on your left side a green wall, which has a door in it, that is the way to Michendorf Nord. (Some buses end in Michendorf-West, then you have to leave the bus at Saarmunder Straße.)

East (A 12, Frankfurt an der Oder, Poland) or Southeast (A 13, Cottbus, Dresden, Prague)

The path to Michendorf Süd is at the B2 behind the motorway, by bus you reach there with buses 643 or N43 until Michendorf, Bergheide.

Michendorf by train

An alternative to reach Michendorf is to take DB regional train RE7 or OE33 from Berlin/Berlin-Wannsee to get off at Michendorf Station. The walk from the station takes around 20 minutes. There are three supermarkets on the way to the Autobahn.

North (A 24, Hamburg, Copenhagen or Rostock)

Take the suburban train (S-Bahn) S8/S4/S85 to the stop 'Pankow-Heinersdorf' close to 'Prenzlauer Promenade' on B109. From the traffic light close to the Autobahn on-ramp (still on B109) it normally only takes minutes until you can find a driver. A 114 leads close after Berlin on 'Berliner Ring' (A 10) which leads after ten minutes to the Autobahn Berlin-Hamburg/Berlin-Rostock. The way here can take one hour from Potsdam as Pankow is in the north of Berlin.
