In general, hitching from Halle to Magdeburg (but also further on in direction of Hannover) is a nightmare. Drivers can go via the exits ''Trotha'', ''Tornau'' or the Bundestraße B100. In the afternoon or morning it could be easier to catch a ride , since quite a few people commute between Halle and Magdeburg.

=== North towards [[Magdeburg]] ===
''Option 1'': Take tram #3, #8 or #12 to the last stop ''Trotha''. Go back to the traffic light where the tram turned and walk 500m along Trothaer Straße (later Magdeburger Chaussee) until you reach an Aral station. Try hitching at the station or stand by the road. After the Aral station there is a shoulder,
but it is not tarmaced and not really good to stop. Further up the road there might be a better spot. In the last village ''Beidersee'' there is a bus stop just 750m before the on-ramp where people can easily stop. The service station ''Plötzetal'' is very close from here it is after the next exit ''Löbejün''. If your driver goes to Könnern ask them to go via the highway and drop you at the service station.
''Option 2:''Take the tram #1 to the last stop ''Frohe Zukunft'' and hitch directly at the road with a sign. Especially locals will avoid the longer route via the B100 and drive this way towards the on-ramp ''Tornau'', but also some navigation systems lead you this way. You can accept a lift to the on-ramp, although there is no shoulder to stop.
