The A61 is a motorway in Germany, that connects the Dutch border near Venlo with southern Germany, ending near Karlsruhe.

It passes Mönchengladbach, Cologne, Koblenz, Bingen, Worms and Speyer.

The traffic consists mainly of trucks and tourists from the Netherlands. Near big cities there's a lot of local traffic. It's a little harder to get long rides and the waiting times might be slightly higher than average.

    • Very big, much traffic.
    • Do not get dropped here, if you want to switch to the A48 direction Trier. You should rather go off at Mendig and get a lift on the Bundesstraße via Mayen. This is much faster and easier.
At service area Brohltal direction north.

    • very nice view over the Mosel valley, but there is no Gas and so there is not many traffic. It is better on sunny days where you can take a look on the valley, but it is really low frequented on rainy or foggy days, or when it is dark.
