Crossable rest areas in Germany
The following German Raststättes do allow, according to Tanken & Rasten 1997, Zweites Halbjahr (the last offial booklet of the Tank & Rast organisation) traffic to cross from one side to the other. Note that the information was copied verbatim, and no attempt was made to verify the current situation!
In Germany passing to the opposite rest area is almost 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.
From Rast.de you can check more details about German Raststättes (eg. if they have wifi or showers).
