Revision as of 12:56, 19 September 2015

The following German Raststättes do allow traffic to cross from one side to the other.

In Germany passing to the opposite rest area is often, but not always, possible through so-called "service roads". Using these service roads it takes quite often less than 20 minutes to go to the opposite rest area, and almost always the walk can be completed within 45 minutes.

Some of the information was copied verbatim from Tanken & Rasten 1997, Zweites Halbjahr (the last official booklet of the Tank & Rast organisation), and no attempt was made to verify the current situation!

This overview is rather complete (03.2015) for all the motorways north of the E30, the E30 (A30, A2, A10, A12) and the A1 up to the A3. For the central and southern part of Germany the overview is not complete.

From Rast.de you can check more details about German Raststättes (eg. if they have wifi or showers).

Autobahn A10

  • Am Fichtenplan, close to the Hannover-bound side of the Raststätte there is a local bridge. Crossing to the other side takes 15-20 minutes and involves getting through fences. At both stations there is at least one "hole in the fence" at the west end of the areas (08.2014), marked here with the letters A and B.
  • Michendorf, bridge on the Hannover-bound side of the Raststätte, involves a 15-20 minutes walk. When crossing from Michendorf Süd to Michendorf Nord, point A on the linked map can be reached by walking out of the Raststätte on the grassy strip. Once you reach a big fence on your left hand, on the map it leads to a bright green field, you should climb up along the fence and walk along the fence to point A.
