- By motorway A6 > autobahn 11 (E28), from petrol station
From bus stop Plac Zwycięstwa which is close to Brama Portowa take bus 81 (only those ones with letter 'b' on the timetable) and go to Kołbaskowo. Another option is getting a bus from central bus station in Szczecin (about 10 buses a day, beside Sundays). In Kołbaskowo there are petrol stations on both sides of the motorway in walking distance. Ask people how to get there. Saying "autostop... Berlin... statsyah benzynova" should be enough.
North and northeast towards Świnoujście and Koszalin, Gdańsk
- By expressway S3 (E65) / national road 6 (E28), from slip road
From city centre e.g. from Brama Portowa take tram 7 or 8 and get off at the last stop called Basen Górniczy. From there take bus 79 or 73(Z) and get off at Zwierzyniecka. Ask people or driver where to get off as buses don't stop on every stop until you press the stop button. Saying "autostop autostrada" should be enough. Next stop is 3km further away! From bus stop Zwierzyniecka go straight uphill for about 500m till you get to the junction with motorway A6 / expressway S3 and national road 10. Cross the motorway on the bridge and turn right to slip road where you can find little lay-by. Make a sign.
