Hitchhiking out

Take the tram number 4 in the direction 'Flughafen Erfurt' (Erfurt airport). Exit at "Volkenroder Weg" and you'll see two petrol stations. Between them there is enough space for cars to stop if you stand on the roadside with a sign "A71".

To reach Gotha or Eisenach (westward on B7)

Take tram number 2 from the city center to the commercial fairground and exhibition center Messe Erfurt to the stop 'mdr/kinderkanal' or 'messe', walk over 'Gothaer Straße' to the 'Real' supermarket and ask drivers standing at the traffic light.

There is a third alternative finding drivers in westward direction: On B7, shortly before the interchange with A71 (Eisenacher Straße corner to Hersfelder Straße), there is a large IKEA furniture market where it should be possible to find more than a handful of drivers that can bring you to any place in the region.
