Garbsen Nord is a service station along the German motorway Bundesautobahn 2 number.svg.

Hitchhiking at this service station is very easy. You have either the chance to ask drivers directly at the service station, or walk to the end of the service station. There's a good spot at the end, just around the corner you'll have enough space to stop cars, and everyone will go this way back to the motorway anyway. Traffic is also mostly slow here. For the spot, see the image blow. Asking people is also a good option, mostly enough traffic here.

Direction Bielefeld, Amsterdam, Dortmund Bundesautobahn 2 number.svg

Most traffic will give you direct rides at least towards Herford or Bielefeld or down towards Dortmund. If you are traveling further along the A2, get out at Service Station Herford if your ride goes towards Bielefeld. If going west towards Amsterdam along the A30, get out at Auetal service station and find a ride onto the A30.


As far as Platschi remembers, there's a big dinosaurs in front of the shop at the end of the service station. There's also a police station just before the petrol station, so if you're in trouble they might help you here.
