Schwerin is a city in the north-east of Germany.
The best way to get to the A14 from almost anywhere in town is to take tram line 1 or 2 to "Stauffenbergstrasse" (or line 4 to "Gartenstadt"). There's a bus stop there, and it's the end of the line, so the only number 6 that leaves heads for "Görslow". It goes twice an hour at peak times, so check the public transportation website  for a timetable ("Fahrplan" => "Fahrplanbuchseiten"). The ticket for tram is valid on buses too. You'll be heading out of the inner zone, so you'll need a ticket for the Gesamtnetz. Get out at "Raben Steinfeld", and walk up the hill. After 10 min. max you'll find a highway ramp on the right hand side. The first goes south, and if you continue, the second is on your left and heads north.
Another frequented driving route is on the "Ludwigsluster Chaussee" heading towards "Ludwigslust", because the road passes the A24 20km from Schwerin. I've never tried it, but it should be possible to take tram line 3 or 4 to "Ludwigsluster Chaussee" or "Haselholz", and continuing south on the Ludwigsluster Chausee, until it crosses the next big street. Everyone travelling south from there is going your direction. Still, I'd recommend the A14.
Try not to be let off at the junction A14 and A24.
- Trams go the hitching place but you can also walk it.
