|Meet fellow hitchhikers on Trustroots|
Mainz is a city in . It is well known in Germany for its famous carnival.
Take bus 28 or 67 to am Fort Biehler. There is a petrol station on the national road, not to far from the motorway.
Take the bus 6a to the stop called Freizeitbad in Wiesbaden. From there, walk back towards the overpass, going under it and following the "motorway" (It's more just a big road) staying to the right. You will see a sign showing the entrance ramp towards Frankfurt as being at the 2nd light. Walk another 15 or 20 minutes and there you are. There is a good place for cars to pull over. I got a ride to Frankfurt from the first car that passed!(August 7th 2009)
Direction Bingen, Koblenz, Bad Kreuznach, Hahn Airport
The bus station Friedrich-von-Pfeiffer-Weg (right at the university) is a good hitchhiking spot on the motorway feeder. Take one of the bus lines 54, 55, 58, 68, 69 to get here. A sign might be very helpful, as cars are going fast here.
On the A60, there is a service area only 10 km away, just before the motorway branches. It's not very busy, but still good for getting long lifts.
