Flensburg is a city in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It's located near the Danish border.

Better avoid getting dropped here, since you'll have to walk to the other side of the city to get your next lift.

Hitchhiking out

North towards Denmark

Probably your best chance is asking the Danes, shopping at the hypermarket before crossing the border. To get there, take the bus towards Niebüll and get off after the bus underpasses the motorway.

You can try the second option if you like, it worked well for Alin titoc, going to the small place Kruså, in Denmark close to border. You can take the number 1 bus or you can walk till there it's about one hour walking from the city center. There is a good spot next to the parking place where the car can easily stop.

There is also a good place at the north side of Kruså. If you follow the main road towards the E45 there is a section where there is space for cars to stop. It’s past the campsite and before the picnic tables.

Another good option is the Autohof between Handewitt and the motorway. To reach it from Flensburg, take the bus that goes towards Niebüll and stops at Handewitt - B199, then walk back toward Flensburg for about 500m.

West towards Niebüll, Sylt

Try it at the road next to the northbound spot or at the bus stop Exe in the western city center. Taking the bus seems to be a good alternative since the spots along the road are not always the best and the vacationists heading to Sylt don't seem to like hitchhikers.

South towards Kiel, Hamburg

From the city center follow the Husumer Strasse leading to an Aral petrol station. Ask the drivers there or stand after the traffic lights.
