* If you are going to Berlin, just make a sign saying ''Berlin'', you will probably get a straight lift from here or at least to Freienhufener where it's very easy to hitch to Berlin from the petrol station/truck stop there.
* If you are going to Poland, make a sign saying ''Bautzen''. That's only a short ride, but just before Bautzen there's a great service area on the motorway where it's easy to find a lift to Poland.
==== Option 2 ====
Another good hitchhiking spot is very close to the motorway ramp. From Bahnhof Neustadt take the bus 81 towards ''Wilschdorf'' and get off at ''Hellerberge''. If you stand besides the bus station with a sign ''Berlin'', you probably won't wait for long.
==== Option 3 ====
Very often there are hitchhikers right behind the railway station ''Dresden-Neustadt''. Be aware that this is a common meeting point for car-pools, so if you stop a car there you might be asked to contribute to the cost of fuel, although generally it is very unlikely as anywhere else in Germany.
