=== North or East towards [[Berlin]], [[Dortmund]], [[Hannover]] and [[Münster]]===
Hitching in that direction is seems to be legendarily difficult unless you take a regional train and walk an hour. Several experienced hitchhikers got trapped countless hours and decided to take a train instead. ReallyNevertheless it's of course possible to hitch out of Cologne, experiences about this vary extremely.So far we have three options:
*'''Option 1:''' Close to the city, you may want to try one of the on -ramps in the North East of Cologne, such as . On-ramp ''Köln Delbrück, -Dellbrück'' (exit 23 on the [[A3 (Germany)|A3]](take ) seems to be good for hitchhiking in direction Remscheid or further along the A1. Also traffic North the A3 passes here. There's no hard shoulder but some green space to stop cars ~60m behind the Autobahn sign. You can get there by taking the metro U18 to "''Holweide Vischeringstr") or Köln-Mülheim. And once youVischeringstrasse''ve tried, come back cross the railways towards the main road and to update this page :)the left you'll find the on-ramp.
It:'s also possible to hitch from the South East of the city because there is '[[User:Platschi]] hitched at Dellbrück in May 2010 and got a petrol ride easily within ten minutes towards Remscheid service station on the A59. The closest bus stop is "Eil Heumarer", bus 152. You can take it from Steinstr. S-Bahn, which is relatively close from with even two cars stopping in the main stationmeantime but driving northbound.''
*'''Option 2:''' It's also possible to hitch from the South East of the city because there is a petrol station on the A59. The closest bus stop is "Eil Heumarer", bus #152. You can take it from Steinstr. S-Bahn, which is relatively close from the main station. *'''Option 3:''' In case you try to use a ramp from Cologne, a good take-off sign is "Remscheid", because the first service area on the [[A1 (Germany)|A1]] is "Rasthof Remscheid", just before the exit for Remscheid. There are lots of commuters. You can also get there by train from Cologne Dom/Hbf for 6,50 Euros via Remscheid Hbf and walk 5 km to the area (map [http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Remscheid+Hbf&daddr=Unknown+road&hl=en&geocode=FTLnDAMdiNttAClRpZsmWyq5RzGlIfHuvHkWrQ%3BFayeDAMdfEduAA&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=1&sz=15&dirflg=w&sll=51.157143,7.226601&sspn=0.008559,0.023174&ie=UTF8&ll=51.169872,7.215099&spn=0.034228,0.092697&t=h&z=13 here]). If you're lucky, catch the bus 672 or 673 (valid with your zone 4 ticket) to Talsperre/Mebusmühle or Talsperre/Raststätte (closer but only 673) and avoid the walk. These buses do not pass very often, though.
