On-ramp in the city
If you are travelling south in direction Frankfurt am Main, take the motorways a A7 and later A5. Göttingen isn't a big city so you can get out from there by walking easily. It's also possible to take a bus. The bus number "4" direction "Kaufpark" goes very close to the motorway. Get out at bus stop Kaufpark. From there you can walk some hundred meters and you'll find a good on-ramp. There is enough place for cars to stop.
Take bus 130 to Mengershausen Kirche. It goes roughly every hour during working days (May 2012: times are changing), look up the times at reiseauskunft.bahn.de / fahrplaner.de(Göttingen Hbf. -> Mengershausen, Kirche). It costs 3.10EUR (Mai '13). Arriving there, you walk down Lindenstraße towards the east where there is a bridge over the Autobahn. Now you can see and choose between both the service stations towards south or north.
