<map lat='52.28034161996665' lng='7.439289093017578' zoom='11' view='0' float='right'/> Rheine is a city in the north of the German Bundesland Nordrhein-Westfalen.

It is located along the highway A30. You can find three ramps here: Rheine-Nord, Rheine and Rheine-Kanalhafen.

Hitching Out

East towards Hörstel, Ibbenbüren, A30 (Ramp Kanalhafen)

  • If you are in the city, there are no real good spots towards the A30 ramp Kanalhafen. If you are at the central station you can walk along the Kardinal-van-Galen-Ring towards Ibbenbüren, walk over the Ems river and go right into the Osnabrücker Strasse. Here you have two choices: You can walk till the end of town where you'll find an Aral gas station, or try to hitchhike somewhere along the way at a bus stop. There's not much space for cars to stop because many are parking next to the road and the street is quite small. It is recommended to walk around 1 km along the Osnabrücker Strasse and try it then at the Persiluhr where some space to stop cars is situated, or some meters further at the crossing with the Friedrich-Ebert-Ring. Whatever, just try to hitchhike, if you have no luck walk until the end of town, if there nobody stops it's just around 2-3 km to the ramp. A sign saying A30 might help you a lot!
  • You can also take a bus to the ramp, it's going twice a day towards Hörstel: Take line #192, it's starting at 6:36 a.m. and 1:16 p.m. at the central station in Rheine. Get out at Hafenstrasse / Kreuzung L501, and walk along the L501 for around 1 km over the bridge towards the ramp. Maybe the bus drives you to Rheine-Rodde / Am Backhaus, that's directly at the ramp. Just ask the bus driver, because he'll definitely stop there on his way back! For further information, download the time table here.
