Ibbenbüren is a city in the north of the German Bundesland North Rhine-Westphalia.

It is located along the A 30. You can find two ramps here: Ibbenbüren-West (11a) and Ibbenbüren (11b).

Forget the ramp #11a, it's new, quite empty and not much in use.

Hitchhiking out

East, West towards Rheine, Amsterdam, Osnabrück, A 1

From the central station, take bus #S50 (towards Münster) or #R63 (towards Bevergern). Best is to ask the bus driver if he's driving towards Brügge/Disco. So of course, get out at Brügge/Disco after some 6 minutes driving with the bus (you'll see a McD's to the right). Then you're standing directly in front of the motorway ramp Ibbenbüren at the A 30. This costs you EUR 1.40.

  • In front of the bus stop you'll see a roundabout with one exit towards the ramp. Just stand there if you go westwards direction Netherlands. There's quite much traffic and some space at the hard shoulder for cars to stop. If you're more into asking people, on the other side of the roundabout you'll recognize a petrol station and a Burger King, so quite enough people to ask.
  • If going east towards Osnabrück or further, walk down under the bridge and try your best at the ramp towards Hannover. It's not that good to stand there, but also some space along the hard shoulder. Most traffic coming from Ibbenbüren goes up this ramp. Try your best, good luck!
