|Motorways:||A7, A44, A49|
Take the bus 32 to the stop Dahlheimer Weg. The street leads direct to the motorway and has a bus bay. A sign GÖ is absolutely necessary, signs with other placenames lead to a very long waiting time. The first service station is Göttingen Ost, the ramp of Göttingen is also good for hitchhiking.
East towards (Halle (Saale), Leipzig), A38
Not tested yet: also from the bus stop Dahlheimer Weg. The first service station at the A38 is Rohnetal Süd between Sangerhausen and Eisleben. For Halle (Saale) doesn't exist a direct exit. For Leipzig it is best that you let you off at the junction Leipzig-Südwest.
Take the trams 4 or 8 to the stop Am Kupferhammer and then follow the main street. Behind the next traffic lights is a good place, a sign is helpful. There are rarely intermediate stops possible on this road, only at Hessisch Lichtenau
If you want to go onto the A4 and you don't get a car more far than Eisenach, then ask your driver not to take the Bundesstraße B7 but the B400 via Wommen, so you can reach the service station Eisenach Nord. If you get a lift only to Oetmannshausen, you have to walk the Bundesstraße to the south for 1,5 kilometers to the next bus stop, where it is another good place to hitchhike.
South towards (Frankfurt am Main, Fulda), A7
Take the trams 5 or 6 or the buses 25 or 27 to the stop Auestadion. You will see the street to the motorway, follow it for 400 meters on the right, there is a bus stop with a bay. A sign is absolutely necessary (F for Frankfurt or FD for Fulda). The first service station on the A7 is Hasselberg West.
South towards (Marburg), A49
Same as above. Behind Baunatal on the A49 there is a petrol station, but it is not good for hitchhiking. Better you take only cars which go until the exit Bad Zwesten, there does the Bundesstraße 3 begin. At Auestadion a sign is absolutely necessary (MR).
Take the buses 51 or 52 to the stop Birkenkopf and follow the street until the traffic lights. There on the onramp is a good place. An ideal place for going west. But also for other directions this place is good, because from some parts of the city it is easier to catch the motorway here. The first petrol station on the A44, Bühleck Nord, is bad for hitchhiking, take the next one, Am Biggenkopf Nord. If you want to go more far than Dortmund it is much better to take a sign DO and go to the service station Am Haarstrang Nord and change the sign there.
Service stations Kassel
The service stations of Kassel are reachable by the bus 38. Take the bus until the stop Bergshausen, Neckarweg. From there go the street along for one kilometer. Behind the motorway on the right is the service station Kassel Ost, which is (good) for hitchhiking, but it is only possible to ask the drivers at the petrol station, but beneath the A7 you also can get lifts for the A38. A resthouse also exists, but there it is (senseless). The service station Kassel West has been closed and there doesn't exist a possibility to hitchhike to the south ( (senseless))!
Single tickets cost in Kassel City 2,50 € and for Bergshausen in the ticket zone Kassel plus 3,30 € (as of 2012). It is not possible to enter a bus without a ticket and in the trams ticket controls are frequently.
